  • Maybe tell him if he's going to put stuff in his mouth you'll get him a pacifier!

  • First,telling and demanding him to swallow it is not smart!!! Take them away where he can't get to them!

  • What would you have done if he did swallow it? Probably freaked the hell out on the poor kid. Lighten up mom. Kids put things in their mouths. While I agree that he shouldn't put tacks in his mouth, doesn't mean you should tell him to swallow it.

  • When my oldest was 12, he swallowed a large lego! He was so freaked out and worried it wouldn't "come out". He hasn't put anything in his mouth that wasn't food again. He is now 16. And to respond to OP- hello! it was a scare tactic because this mom knows her child will not really swallow it on purpose. she was only trying to prove a point. I would have asked "why wont you swallow it?" and the kid would have to say cause it doesn't belong in my mouth.

  • Well, tell him this true story. A friend of my cousin actually did swallow a tack about two months ago. He is now not alive to tell this story himself.
