My lo (4) has just informed me that while he is at his fathers (every other week) that he as a punishment is made to stand in the corner ON ONE LEG!!!??? He also said that when his step brother says a bad word his daddy makes him hold hot sauce on his tongue!!!

I've heard of those kinds of punishments before, but would never do that to my child.

That's corporal punishment during my grandmothers time.  Dad needs to know that misbehaving children aren't the same as Guantanamo detainees.

It enrages me even more because my son acts 100% like his father he is just imitating him and the other little boy is subjected to that type of language so how can they expect them to not copy it!? They have had DCF called on them 3 times that i know of but that is a joke!!

though i do believe in some of those kinds of punishments. wallsits are good. standing in the corner on one leg. stuff like that.

the hotsauce, no. but i dont consider it abuse unless its over the top.

My boys stand in the corner, nose to wall, on tiptoes but that is not the first option. We also write sentences.

I'd hit the roof! Honestly that would upset me!

I'm not a fan of the hot sauce but it's not illegal and a far better choice than soap... I'm not sure why you're so bent out of shape about standing on the corner on one leg. It's not damaging or painful.

That punishment is a bit extreme!
