    I remember seeing something on Dr Phil a while back about a mother force feeding her adopted child chilli sauce. I still remember that poor kid screaming and crying It's abuse.

    I hold my kids accountable, I just don't smack and scream at them and put chili or soap in their mouth!

    I'm normally a 'each to their own' type person and try not to judge, sorry but in this thread I am.

    I saw that too, it was very upsetting.

    One thing that annoys me though is when a kid can punch another in the face and only be told "is that the way way we treat our friend" my son ended up bleeding and the other child was told to think about his actions and sit out for 10 minutes and asked if he wanted to say sorry.

    Maybe if more kids were held accountable for their actions we would live in a better society.
    Just because the repercussions of one bad incident seem unjust does not justify chilli sauce/soap on the tongue for a different incident.

    ETA: My children are held accountable as much as they can be (2 and 6) but I choose to use more gentle forms of disciple that don't frighten or hurt them. To quote his report card "J displays excellent manners and behaviour at all times". He also got the highest possible marks for all areas of behaviour in the mid-year school report.

    I did my own research and came to the conclusion that we should stick to the original topic.

    My DS went through a horrendous swearing phase at age 4. Maybe it's a 4 year old thing? We tried everything but honestly ignoring (though hard, I know) worked best. He did eventually stop and now at nearly 7 he never swears. It was such a difficult stage!!

    My ds is 4 and awhile back picked up naughty words from daddy and his work mates (construction workers so some foul nasty stuff) i literally ignored him. I don't mean the word i mean he was flat shunned for lack of a better word. He said sorry and he never ever ever said it again. Some may not agree with that but its what i did and it worked.

    I would never ever make my child ingest or swish anything in their mouths. As kids we got a mouth full of washing powder and a cup full of warm water and told to swish for 5 mins if we spat it out we had to start the time all over again. Absolutely horrendous, terrible nasty stuff i will never force that upon anyone ever in my life. Sorry but i don't agree there.

    I just wanted to add that I think it's about 4 years when boys can get a big surge of testosterone so that might be where his aggression is coming from.

    This makes my skin crawl. Of course you should listen to others and seek advice. Soap or what ever in the mouth is abuse, no ifs or buts about it.
