The Hot Sauce Mom

I probably have seen the video of the mom pouring hot sauce in her 7 year-old's mouth a dozen times and it still freaks me out. Who does that? What's it supposed to accomplish--to raise a kid to fear spicy foods? (that was a joke)

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?

You had to ask?

that video just makes me sick. that poor boy is screaming in terror in that shower, and i just break down. there are better ways to do things. sure kids aren't always easy to deal with, but it's okay to seek help BEFORE you go nuts, and then when you seek help, not to seek it on international TV after you've gone nuts. I've become pretty good at picking out a fake "oh no i'm in trouble let's see if crying will help get me out of trouble" cry from a real one, and that kid was crying in sheer terror. I do like Dr'' Phil's wife's response, how she ripped that lady a new asshole. I didn't see how the show ended, but I hope it was with police officers coming to have a chat.
