  • Yes I have done that. My daughter has picked up some things from school and if I tell her I don't want to here it and I do again I wash her mouth out with soap. It stops the behavior.

  • No, but I threatened to. Had it done when I was younger one time for cursing and I never did again till I turned 18 and then I cursed like a sailor.

  • Yes ma'am. I used to do it quite often.. Of course, my parents did it to me too. It's totally okay and no kid ever died from it yet.

  • I would never do that. I think there are better ways to get across to children what is acceptable behavior. I don't spank, so I'm certainly not going to shove soap in my kids mouth.
