So we went to visit with a neighbor, the little boy that is friends with my nephews friend was cussing at his grandma in Spanish so she washed his mouth out with soap twice. Is this abuse?

I don't know if it is technically abuse in the eyes of the law but it would be considered abuse in my house

There has been cases where children have been removed for washing their mouths out with soap.
So yes.

Idk how I feel about it, I mean this kid is really out of control, she had to do something he also hit his mother in the face while I was there.

I got lava soap once as a kid. Once was all it took.

I haven't faced this issue with my child so I can't say I'd definitely use soap or definitely wouldn't.

My mom used to do ivory soap, I don't know if I would do it, probably not.
