    I only spanked for intentionally hurting someone (the irony), putting themselves or someone else in danger, or direct defiance. And not always then. But I always, always, always explained even when I was pretty sure they were too little to understand. But until (and sometimes after) they get to a certain age you can talk or yell until your jaw falls off and they don't care. What means something to them is consequences and you can't let them face the natural consequences of running into the street or climbing out of their car seats.

    But I never did hot sauce. That's weird to me, but maybe that's because I wasn't raised that way. I did a little rub of soap on the tongue, but I made sure it wasn't toxic and tasted it myself first. I usually tested punishments on myself before I did them to the kids. I've known of parents that squirted dish soap into their kids' mouths or spanked bare butts (that weren't already bare). Those aren't things I could be comfortable with, either. And I don't think if I was doing things again now I'd soap their tongues. There are better ways to do things.
    @bold- I was immediately reminded of the end of this scene in A Christmas Story:

    03/23 06:06:59 EcK: lex
    03/23 06:21:34 Nancynobullets: LEXXX *sacrifices a first born*
    03/23 06:21:53 Nancynobullets: We summon yooouuu
    03/23 06:29:07 Lexicon: I was sleeping!



    04/25 04:20:35 Patches: Don't listen to lex. She wants to birth a litter of kittens. She doesnt get to decide whats creepy

    02/16 23:49:38 ygolo: Lex is afk
    02/16 23:49:45 Cimarron: she's doing drugs with Jack

    03/05 19:27:41 Time: You can't make chat morbid. Lex does it naturally.

    That's our family Christmas movie! Well, that and The Hogfather.

    I could kinda be that mom, except I am a little tougher.

The other, of course, involves orcs.”

    Better to be like Ralphie's mom than Schwartz's.. she sounds like an animal at 1:25 (I still can't help laughing).

    It's like that teacher on Jimmy Neutron.
