my 7yo DD is a mouthy little one--well should say was a mouth little one! she kept it up, even after time outs, loss of toys and priveldeges and a miriad of other punishments. My mother mentor told me try nasty tasting foods on her tongue, so we did lemon juice and other not so sweet things--turns out she liked them! So she said try tabasco--not hte extra hot, just old-fashioned regular tabasco. took one time(with a tip of a tooth pick) on her tongue, and she thinks--i mean really thinks-- before saying something hurtful to someone, or being mouthy with an adult. I told her, it stings your tongue , the way your words sting my heart, and those other peoples hearts who your mean to!--She is soo respectful and nice now. I know I hurt her for a few seconds, but, I had to get my point across!
