Using hot sauce and cold showers as discipline.

How could anyone do this to their child? I'm so disgusted.

  • There was a thing on doctor Phil about it. I'm not a fan of his, but watched this. It made me sick to my stomach. How could any parent do this to an innocent child. The mother should be put in a freezing cold shower and shouldn't be allowed out until she's drank an entire bottle of hot sauce.

  • Apparently she may be facing some jail time...although I can't seem to find the details on that. Heard about this story on FB

  • Although today this is considered abuse, a lot of South American families in the old school days used this form of tactics to discipline their children. My parents use to do this to me and really did not work it just made me worse. Now that I'm a mother I point it out to my mom and she feels horrible about it. But it is more common than you would think.

  • I'd hope so. And I'm not sure if it's the same story as on dr. Phil, but the child was an adopted child. He should be taken out of that abusive house.

  • My question is how is drinking that much hot sauce not dangerous? It would be very painful to the mouth and possibly stomach. It could even flare an ulcer if the child is suscptable to such ailments. That is horrible.

  • I couldn't even watch it all. Made me cry. My cousin was adopted from Russia. She had lots of issues, but it was due to the situations she lived in, and she needed love and guidance, not discipline. I hope that child finds a home he can be loved in .
