    I am planning to trip to WHL in 2012 with my family, but I have two daughters (ages 11 and 13), and I am faced with either trying to get seats in the family section, or other areas which are more colorful. I REALLY want to sit in the areas where I get the true experience but not if it is too over the top for the rest of my family. I am not a prude, but I am not interested in explaining the meaning of various terms to explain the human anatomy in the course of a game. If it is not bad, then I have nothing to fear.

    What do you think?

    I have been to a few games and found that the east stand is the best atmosphere and whole experience. You say you want the true experience and to get this the east stand is the best way imo.

    As long as you avoid south upper and lower on the blocks nearest the west stand and the east stand where it meets the south you will be fine.

    Also if you attend games like Swansea, villa etc there is less to worry about in comparison to Le arse, manure, Chavs, dippers and the UAE city.

    depends what you're willing to tolerate mate. I dont think you'd go a game in the park lane or shelf side without hearing words like c*nt, f*ck, wan*er etc. It might be better in a lesser game but the risk is with that is we start losing and then the language will start to get colourful.

    My dad took me to Spurs Arsenal on a monday night in 2000 (I was 9) and at half time I asked him to explain what a paedophile was to me. To this day he still finds it funny. You could call it "bad parenting" (I wouldn't as I loved it), but it's only a matter of time before young people find these words anyway - usually first year of secondary school!

    If you want to avoid the commoners, West Stand upper - pricey - but least you don't need to explain the human anatomy.

    Never been to the North stand but that's where the family section sits.

    How about in the East stands?

    Believe it or not, I'm actually ok with the last two example you gave. The difference is that I get the sense that the c word is used more freely in the UK. In the States, it is like the nuclear bomb of curses... Tough one for teen girls, you know...

    Yes the East is the best for atmosphere but you will still be hearing swear words. Happens in every section of the ground.

    It's still the nuke here, it's the most offensive swear word we have left and it's slowly being overused into being common place.

    I went to the North Stand when I was about twelve and I didn't catch any colourful language really... not that I hadn't heard anyway.

    hmm im not sure it's considered as bad over here as they consider it in America. I think some people would say to a mate you're a daft c*nt or something like that and we wouldnt really bat an eyelid- in america i get the feeling this wouldnt happen. In the park lane end you would hear it and also some of the shelf side i reckon as well unless you're lucky.

    LOL, bring them to the game all will be OK, and they will see English people are not really sophisticated suit wearing, bowler hat wearing butlers but we're HOOLIGAAAAAAAAAAAAANS.

    If you sit in the family stand (Paxton), you will still hear swearing, but not get the atmosphere. I don't think you will avoid swearing anywhere tbh so IMO you should try to get on the Shelf Upper. You get quite a few quieter people sitting there but a lot of louder ones too, which creates probably the kind of mix that would suit you. Avoid Park Lane Lower - as we all stand there anyway and your kids' view will be obstructed.
