Do you or do you know anyone who still does this?
I recently overheard a conversation between two moms who I had thought were a little more progressive with their parenting styles. One was telling the other that last week her 6 year old child said "Oh my GOD" and how she promptly got a bar of soap and had her child bit on it, then lick it several times "just so she wouldn't forget the taste".
The other mom replied that she used liquid dish soap cause "It's easier to just hold their face and shove the tip in and squirt away!"
Seriously I was shocked that people still do this, this is something my mother would have had done to her in the 50's and 60's not something I expected to see in 2012!!!
