    The first thing I thought was... poor girl. This isn't the old school days when soap was lye and ruffage. Soap contains a number of foaming agents now and various poisons which aren't even suitable on the skin... and they made her chew on a bar. Gross.

    Of course they had to take her to the hospital. Soap is an external use only product.

    In all seriousness, those are examples of parents lying to their children.

    Every year I teach my boys (5 and 8) the history of Santa and why we celebrate him with "the Santa game", where everyone pretends that Santa is real and hands out gifts.

    This drives my estranged wife nuts. As if that weren't enough reason to keep doing it, I don't want my children believing these fairy-tails as though they're actual literal fact when I know otherwise.

    Lying per-se is not right or wrong, and I have and would again lie to my children if it served their interest, but allowing them to believe in Santa would sew mistrust.

    Now then, queue the token atheist: "Well why do you teach you kids about God and other fairy-tails, then?"

    The way my mom washed my mouth out with soap was to take a little dish liquid on her the tip of her finger and rub it on my lips, which I immediately licked and got the dish liquid (a very small amount) on my tongue. And that was enough.

    I think my mother washed my mouth out with soap twice. Once for saying a dirty word and once for telling her a lie. A blatant "no, I didn't break that vase" when she was standing right there and saw me break the vase.

    Twice. that's all it took. These people went way overboard.

    I doubt very seriously that any such study has been done. But the very fact that at one point you could bring a gun/knife to school and no one blinked twice at it and compare it to now when much of the punishments used back then are considered child abuse now vs how guns/knives are treated in schools now shows to me that there is a correlation. Unless you can come up with another explanation that's more logical?

    Reason that I think such a study has not been done is because then the CPS would have to be reigned in and Big Brother would have less power.
