This woman is now under investigation for child abuse. She forces him to hold hot sauce in his mouth while she is screaming at him. She then forces him to undress and put him into a cold shower, while he is screaming. This little boy was adopted from Russia. There has been talk that older children from Russia sometimes have behavioral problems. But, that certainly doesn't make what she is doing OK.
Apparently, it doesn't seem that this behavior rises to the point of criminal child abuse, and child social services have left him and the other five children in the home with her. She has four biological children and twins that have been adopted from Russia. She has been charged, but most experts agree that she will not be found guilty.
She also has admitted to spanking him and forcing him to do jumping jacks until he drops from exhaustion. Wow, she sounds lovely. Wish I had mom like that!!
Obviously these things are not working with this child, it is very possible he needs more hugs rather than Tabasco or cold showers. If you are doing these types of things and it isn't changing behavior, it is time to get professional help, not continuing to burn the inside of your kids mouth. Seriously, what is wrong with people?
