'Bad' words

Are there any other words, besides curse words, that you don't let your child say (or if you don't have kids, your parents didn't let you say)?

Inspired by my friend saying she doesn't let her son say 'hate', that it's a 'bad word'.

For a long time, we didn't let our kids say 'die' or 'death', only 'destroy' (while playing).

I was wondering if anyone else did something like that. 

(no subject)

I don't know if I'm hormonal or what.

Today, I moved all my furniture into a new apartment with the help of my father and a close friend.

My friend told me that I shouldn't let my father move furniture ever again, because he's getting old. I know my father is about 60 years old, but he's not I such bad shape he can't move furniture. He says my dad is losing it. He is kind of misunderstood, though, and always has been, and I got really defensive about those comments

I'm feeling really upset now. I haven't always been great to my dad but he's always been great to me, so I am trying to recognize that as an adult. But now I just feel like I burdened my father by having him help me move. I already have issues with people helping me with things and now I'm just completely upset like I didn't deserve any help. This has put a whole damper on my night

Is this normal, to feel guilty like this when it comes to your parents? How can I make my friend realize that he's really upsetting me ? I figure that now isn't the best time given that he helped me today
