    I'm not listening to a guy named Ignite on the moderate effects of burning......

    That was sarcasm. Did you see the rolling eyes? I don't need to be wiser next time.

    And Oberon, I bet you never made any of those nice well behaved kids of yours hold hot sauce in their mouths.

    No, I never have done that... but neither do I think this mother requires psychiatric evaluation. I mean, maybe in a perfect world she would, but there are other parents out there brutalizing their children with physical acts that do real permanent damage to their bodies. Finding and stopping these maniacs ought to be the priority. Our social services agencies have much better things to do than worry with a lady who punishes her kids for lying by making them take hot sauce.

    See? I was right to doubt you. Oh well... there's always next time.

    Fair enough, and I agree. There are far worse things being done, that still doesn't make this act justifiable, because it is not the worst of the worst. It is still a dumb punishment and cruel in nature.

    I got soap and Tabasco when I was a kid, for being snotty to my mom. I don't think it was a huge deal. My evil aunt made my cousin drink Dawn dish soap though. I told my mom and she freaked out on my aunt. So, I guess it just depends.

    One thing you might want to remember about punishment: In order for it to have any effect, it's got to be unpleasant.
    Another thing to remember about punishment - most of the time, it doesn't work. It only teaches avoidance of sanction, rather than proper behavior.

    And the easiest means of avoiding sanction is through proper behavior.

    This thread reminds me of the spanking thread; many people seem to have an extremely broad interpretation of child abuse, which to me is just as bad as the 'tiger mother' idea.

    Not always. Oftentimes, simply not getting caught is a better option - you get what you want, and avoid punishment at the same time. Of course, that only teaches that doing anything is OK if you don't get caught, and does not instill any sense of morality whatsoever.
