[A mother of an 8 year old boy is asking for advice on how to handle his smart mouth.]

There is always hot sauce....relating that to the "Hell" that is comming out of his mouth won't be tolerated.

"There is always hot sauce...."

I'm pretty sure such things are no longer suggested by child development/rearing experts as they don't actually work.

"relating that to the "Hell" that is comming out of his mouth won't be tolerated."

I'm also pretty sure that mental abuse isn't going to work either.

How about you just tell her to pick up a book about raising kids from the bookstore that's not 50 years old?

Good idea, child abuse for jayyzuuusss

A woman I work with was telling us about someone she knows who put a load of mustard in their kid's mouth when he was swearing. In her defence, it was only because he seemed to have developed an immunity to soap.

Allegory for Jesus

Wow....apparently that is a popular form of fundie punishment. The hellfire part of it though, that just seems to make it excessive. Topping a potentially harmful punishment with what is essentially a death threat scolding is just mean.

One of my nieces used to drink hot sauce from the bottle if she could get to it at two, the other liked the "extra hot" salsas. Depending on your kid this idea is either child abuse or a reward.
Unless you're using cheap hot sauce. Some of those are nasty. All heat and no flavour, who needs that?

Okay, I just need to let y'all know that I am absolutely NO relation to that bitch.

Also, "hot-saucing" is being recommended by fundie child-rearing "experts" right now. There's a whole long essay about it at ReligiousTolerance.org:


By the way, the makers of both Tabasco and Texas Pete brands say to leave their stuff out of it. Which is smart, because they want kids today to buy it tomorrow!

8/29/2008 2:16:27 PM


I suggest a Tabasco enema for Greenie to flush the shit she's producing in such quantities.

8/29/2008 2:19:47 PM


hope they don't discover wasabi.

Before everyone jumps all over her, isn't this just a little bit better than washing the kid's mouth out with soap? The same way that a slap across the butt with an open hand is much less severe than the old taking him out to the woodshed to beat the hell out of the unruly bastard with a wooden stick.

Resorting to abuse to "handle" a "smart mouth" reveals much about the parenting skills of religious nutbars. Children, by the time they are 8, have fully formed personalities that really don't change much, fundamentally.
Children that are neglected, or feel the need for attention will find a way to get the attention that they have been denied by "busy" parents. If you find yourself in an adversarial relationship with your child, then it is you who has made the mistake, not the child. Children, for the most part, reflect their parent's personalities, which is why they can and do drive us around the bend sometimes.
Patience, love, communication and example are far more effective tools for parents than abuse.

I have noticed this weird thing that children that are raised in homes where the parents don't curse are less inclined to curse themselves. Just call me old fashioned.

But certainly a "GreenEyed<b>LADY</b>" wouldn't curse in front of her child! He must have heard it on tv...

I hate ironic punishments.

8/29/2008 2:39:39 PM


Why don't you give him some hot n spicy chicken wings? Good stuff I tell you.

8/29/2008 2:47:45 PM


Huzzah for child abuse! It's the Christofascist form of love.

8/29/2008 2:48:51 PM


Green Eyed Child abuse!

8/29/2008 2:55:01 PM

There's a good chance that the fundie's kids are trying to be funny with the "smart mouths" and since the parents have no sense of humor the kids get punished.

These are people who don't like anyone who doesn't conform with their way of thinking and their kids had better not develop their own sense of self.

Fundies don't really want children, they want robots for Jesus.

If you, as an adult, have to resort to use of hot sauce or soap, you have lost as a parent and need help!

Hey, fifty years old is a good step up from two thousand years old.

Reverend Jeremiah

..not to mention the liquid "Hell" that may come out of his other end and all over his Iron Man underoos after SCARRING the SHIT out of him with Jesus' loving flaming torture chamber mixed with too much tobbasco sauce.

I suggest using Texas Pete for this situation, seeing that "Hot" sauce is for pussies who cant stand the real heat.

If it isnt Tobbasco, it isnt hot!

8/29/2008 3:12:27 PM


If you're seriously considering this as an option for child development, I suggest you go pour some of that hot souce in your eyes.


8/29/2008 3:19:32 PM



Oh, I hope they do. Wasabi clears the sinuses and leaves no residual heat trail whatsoever. It's the "flash grenade" of hot condiments.

But it's probably too un-American for fundies.

8/29/2008 3:21:36 PM


I've tasted hotter foods.

And if he happens to have a smart brain, what do you do then?
