Have you ever done this?

I know back in the day I always would hear if you lie to me i'm gonna wash your mouth out with soap. Have you ever said this to your kids and have you ever actually followed through and done it.

  • No, my kid are to young to really understand what a lie is. When they get older I'm going to tell them that every time they lie, their nose grows. When they get a lot older them will be grounded for lying.

  • My kids are too young to lie to me. My oldest only says a handful of words and not very clearly at that.
    However, at the point when he discovers lying I would never ever wash his mouth out with soap. Those are chemicals in those soaps that are not meant to be ingested by people or pets. Even the smallest amount can cause issues in the body. I would never inflict that risk onto my child for anything.
