    Default 8 and 13 year old daughters swearing

    Both my 8 and 13 year old daughters have disgusting mouths. They swear around the house, in the street and even at me when they are having a tantrum. I have tried grounding the older one but she isn't bothered so what other methods can I use to discipline them both?

    Take away things that they like, toys for the 8 year old, TV/computer time, take it from their pocket money etc.

    Wash their mouth out with soap! Tabasco sauce for when your out. Just keep it in your bag. Worked for my mum. I still hate swearing.

    The bar is worse! The little hotel ones! She used to make us suck on them.

    Edit: while sucking on the soap tell them that you won't have that language and why. Let the younger one know that it's words she doesn't understand and they are for adults that have no better way to express themselves. The older one just let her know you won't have it any more. That it's a disgusting habit.

    Surely you don't need to revert to this!!
    It's cruel and there are many other ways to deal with it.

    Is there a need to suggest people do this?? It is abusive.

    Please don't use soap (or tabasco for that matter)!! Soap can burn them and can be quite dangerous. I read an article about this recently - I'll see if I can find it.

    eta: I can't find the article, but seriously, soap is NOT for internal use and your child could end up in hospital if you did this. And the hospital would likely report you.

    I know it's bad but she only had to do it once with me. My older sister got it a few more times as it was a habit she had to break.

    I'm not saying that it is a good idea for long term use. And it is old school. But it worked on us. I don't remember it burning or hurting. Just the bad taste for an hour or 2.
