A woman on the Joy Behar show said that she didn't think it was a big deal and that the mother was "creative." Good gravy, Marie! (a saying from my Mom.)
Needless to say Joy was dumbstruck--she's against corporal punishment.
I have to admit there was a time or two I smacked Liam--and I felt like absolute shit afterwards and apologized profusely. It didn't make it right though.
I once read that the Conservative Christian Facts of Life star Lisa Whelchel uses/used the hot sauce thing too. Is it a right wing nutjob thing?
