i saw this story on dr.phil and was disgusted by it..this IS child abuse, the cold shower too, awful...but i think the woman has bigger problems than just trouble disciplining her kid because he had to move his card twice at school.

Abuse - no.

Bad parenting - yes.

She needs help - that is why she went on Dr. Phil.

Thanks for replying .. I do realize there are levels of abuse and that these are not extreme but putting a child in a cold shower or hot sauce in the mouth are beyond bad parenting in my view of good and bad parenting. To me bad parenting is not giving your child guidelines for behavior and rules for living or neglecting to prepare them for what lies ahead in the real world where mom or dad aren't around to bail them out.

Not abuse? you cannot be serous. It is child abuse in every shape way and form. She has abused him, mentally, physically and emotionally.

:( I did not see the video nor did I see the Dr Phil episode.. this does go way beyond bad parenting. I agree the children in this family will need therapy...

I am not really a fan of taking one clip out of a person's life and judging the whole.

Is hot sauce abusive. How much hot sauce? Was their burning? Soap? Is that abusive too?

Is a cold shower abusive? My son did pushups in a cold shower once because his friends dad made him do it. Did I think abuse. I may have thought jar head. But not abuse.

Is yelling in the face abusive? Well it's not good parenting but abusive - go to jail for it. Hmmm!

I am sure there is a day

Do you mean - Wow that abusive.

Or do you mean that is abuse - the full and legal meaning of abuse. You

She's also a mother of 6--I don't see that fact reported much.
