I was just wondering what current views are on washing out a childs mouth with soap after saying a bad word? My mom did it to me once, and by 'washing my mouth' I mean she swiped a washcloth across a bar of soap, then across my tounge. I just wanted to add that 1) it worked and 2) when my sister tried saying the same word, I told her about the soap and SHE never said it either. But my daughters one 1, so right now its not even a issue but it may be some day. Thoughts?
