Vinegar or hot sauce? Good or Bad discipline of a younger naughty child ?


The punishment for being saucy, telling a lie, swearing, just being really bad and nasty child is vinegar or Hot sauce. My son & daughter-in-law give their children a small drop of vinegar or hot sauce, as a last resort for punishment. I struggle with this. How do others feel about it?

    Thank you for understanding. You are completely correct. I wanted feedback to find if if this was something new that parents of "today" did? It is something I would never ever do. I never even spanked my sons as I felt it was abusive and now this.

    I do not agree with this. I struggle with it but it seems to work by just using the threat. I was never a parent who used physical abuse as a form of punishment. My sons sat on a stool in the corner.

    Wished I had seen this on Dr Phil. I do not agree with it. Inever physically punished my sons. They had corner time outs.

    I totally agree but how does one tell her daughter-in-law she has a parenting problem. I would never do this.

    I agree. I posted this question because I had never heard of it being done before. My son struggles but my daughter - in-law has no problem giving vinegar to my 4 yr old granddaughter and she's a professional theapist.
