Did you see this on Dr. Phil...A mom using hot sauce & cold showers as a punishment?

I could never do that to my dd's!!! What ever happened to her anyways?

  • I saw the preview and made sure I DVR the show, I was sure I was going to think the worse of her. I do think what she did was aweful to that poor little boy. But ~ I have to give her credit for trying to get help. Some people don't know what to do when it comes to consequences. I really wish they taught it in high school.

  • angryI saw that show that day that it aired, it made me could someone do this to a child??? This or any sort of child abuse is un called for. No child deserves to be abused. That woman needs her face beat in thats for sure. She should never be allowed to have children in her house again and should have to register as a child abuser !!!! I hope she rots in hell where she belongs

  • i haven't heard about her in a while.. but that is very abusive imo.. a cold shower in Alaska?? the mom went overboard and she should be punished accordingly.

  • sassy spray. Its watered down vinegar in a spray bottle. Kids get a squirt when they talk back. My nephew gets a drop of hot sauce bc he likes the vinegar. Its one of the taste profiles. Not enough to make the eyes water but enough to say "hello!" not to a 30 month old, but to a 5 year old, yes. Already eats it in the food i cook anyway.
    cold showers, no. Taking a shower is part of good personal health and I would never associate it with punishment.
