She washes her kids mouths out with soap. Now, I can see doing this when I was little (uk, it happened a couple of times) but having just come out of working in a lab where I tested EPA standards, I know the ingredients in soap...and there is some pretty harsh stuff in there. Several moms got onto her calling this abuse. While I would never do this, and in the specific case of this woman I think it is abuse, I was just wondering, is washing kids mouth out still a common practice for some parents?
I am amazed people still do this. My mom did this to me when I was a kid. I had diarrhea all the time from the soap. I think it is abusive. Some parents are not creative enough to discipline in a way that is effective and not abusive. I feel bad for their kids. My son has never been spanked, had soap or hot sauce in his mouth. We use logical consequences. He does not talk back and rarely misbehaves. We have been an example of how to behave and found better ways to correct his behavior. My siblings all use violent and cruel discipline. Their kids are brats and still don't listen. They ask me what I do to have a calm child and they think I am nuts. I have a calm, sweet, intelligent, creative, fun spirited and well behaved child I would think they would beg me to help them. To each their own.
