No, not THAT form of discipline, you kinky devil, you! I’m talking about child rearing. It would seem that parents are taking to the habanero pepper as a tool in molding young minds. Now, I can speak first hand to this because I’ve personally been affected by this. My girlfriend likes spicy foods and I tried to sneak a taste of what LOOKED like “beef with broccoli”. I’ll never do THAT again!
In all seriousness, ABCNEWS has done a report debating the issue. Is it tortune? Was it torture when I got a mouthful of Irish Spring when I said the word “crap” in Montessori school when I was 6? Um… yes. I can still taste that cra…. stuff.
