Solution to back talking


Ahhh, I’ve found a better solution for a boy who likes to talk back to me. Until recently, I put soap in his mouth when he talks back, or screams ‘NO’ at me. It didn’t seem to be working. So I tried Tabasco sauce. The first time he had it was about 3 weeks ago. He screamed. I thought, great, its gonna work. And for the next 2 weeks, it did. Just the threat of me saying ‘do that again and you’ll get tabasco sauce’ seemed to work. Then on Tuesday he got it 2 times. Because of his reaction to it, I decided I should try it as well. Its not too bad. Yeah, its hot and burns on the tongue for a little while, but it went away after a couple of minutes without me even drinking anything.
What do you do for kids who talk back??

I did a little drop liquid soap once. He didn't like it very much. Once you find a solution, let me know! It's just comforting to know that my kid isn't the only one! Sorry! Lol!

I did a little drop of that once and my daughter screamed for a long time. We gave her ice cream and milk and what not to get rid of the burning. I don't have the guts to do it again and she knows what's in that bottle now!
