  • I guess you have to explain a little more. when I was younger and swore I use to get soap in my mouth and it made me think twice!

  • I ate soap as a kid, worked for me. But you are probably going to get more "NO IT'S WRONG, IT'S CHILD ABUSE" and answers like that

  • LOL! I got the soap in the mouth all the time as a kid. I am just fine. It's not the method of choice, but it worked for me.

  • I personally wouldn't use soap, but I have used vinegar water (spray bottle) and it worked.

  • Seems a little aggressive to get improvement~she may have needed to go there to gain some control. she is teaching a way of dealing with stuff~we shouldn't have to out power people to get our way~we are clever adults and we rule their world~(and how she deals with this is maybe how her grandchildren will be dealt with...might be nice to pass down skills).

  • Horrible punishment!!! I had that done to me when I was little and boy it really was disgusting. I didn't learn anything from it other than I don't like the taste of soap. I think there are other punishments out there that would be an improvement over doing that.

  • Well I personally wouldn't do it lol. I don't think that really works though as a discipline

    lol...that is awesome!!! i think i found something for my kids when they get is food so it is supposed to go in the mouth so no physical harm done.....but i know neither of my kids like spicey food so it will make them think twice about talking back.....not so fond of the soap i have tried it but i felt bad and was afraid it would make them sick so i never did it again. BUT the hot sauce thing is def a keeper!!!
