In my school, almost all the children say bad words, how can I control myself from saying these words? And how can I help them to stop saying these words?

Sri Sri Ravi Shankar:

You have the power. You are superman, I tell you. You be determined, ‘I will not say any bad words.’
Do you know, I have not said one bad word all these years? So when I could do it, you can also do it. Never has it come to me, even when I was upset. The worst word that has come out of me is, ‘Stupid’, that is all I have said. Nothing beyond that, no swearing, not a single bad word, ever.
