I wonder, do you teach your kids to use those expression as well? I can imagine at school "I'm going to punch you in the face", school calls dad and dad replies "don't worry it is all metaphor". You think that will go well?
There's actually a very good book written about this called: The Death of Common Sense.
Since teachers and such didn't use good common sense in dealing with problem kids, now kids are expelled from school WITH NO EXCEPTIONS for such things as having a plastic knife for their peanut butter in their lunch bag. (and even kids being expelled for having peanut butter at all)
I hope you aren't supporting such policies.
