That's Just Weird


Rosario Dawson was doing some press for her new film Explicit and somehow she and FOX News started talking about children. They probably asked her if she intended on having any, but at some point the conversation turned into how she would discipline her children. Apparently she is not in the spanking category or the put them into timeout category either. No, Rosario has a unique way of punishing that she says her mother did to her and she thinks works great. She is going to lick them. Umm. Yeah.

"I think licking is a really great way of disciplining your child. It's definitely a lot better than screaming at them. My mom did it to me for punishment, she loves to say that I came [from her] so she can do anything that she wants to me in public. If I was acting out or talking up or just being a precocious child as I was she would lick me and my face in front of all her friends."

I admit that anything is better than screaming at your child, but I am trying to picture adults all over the world licking their children and the only ones I can think of who would enjoy doing that is Joe Simpson. He is probably kicking himself that he didn't think of this punishment. Can you ever see yourself doing this?

She has got to be kidding right? I'm trying to imagine a child in a grocery store line yelling at their parents to buy candy and having mom or dad reach over and lick their face. I think the only way it would work is if their parent didn't brush their teeth regularly or was a smoker.

That is just nasty. I could see it working in some situations though. You gross the kid out and they stop screaming and stare at you with an open mouth! Don't think I will try this on any of my kids though.

I thought you meant weird as in her make-up doesn't match her true skin color. ;)

Pookie said...

how absolutely disgusting.

seriously.

but enty, you're late on the draw...this story is already moldy oldie. rosario even specified that the licking was under the armpit.

eww. grossed me out when i read it then, grosses me out now.

This has nothing to do with the licking subject, but I also thought Rosario was one of the ugliest people I have ever seen. I know that sounds mean, but I had to get that off my chest.

Goodgrief said...

I think Billy Ray Cyrus is just about in the same category as Joe Simpson. I don't have kids, but I really can't see myself licking them if I did. It sounds so abnormal.

better than hitting your kid.

i would have preferred that to my father dragging me by my hair and then catapulting me into my room. i actually think that could work in an odd way. who wants to have their face licked? i would have stopped calling my brother "dumbass" in that case haha

Ror said...

Remember when your mom would lick her hand and then try to straighten your hair out before church or going into a store?

Same damn thing. I squirmed when my mom did it to me as well.

Hey, whatever works. At least it's better than 'talking' to kids. That's just bullshit and it doesn't work.

Mika said...

I guess it kinda sounds weird but my mom used to lick my hands clean from sticky messes if we were too far away from a sink. Lmao! Not kiddin...

My mom is so not crazy.

Who hasn't had their mom lick her handkerchief or kleenex before wiping your face with it? My mom did it countless times and always ended up getting lipstick all over me. I can still smell Estee Lauder when I think about it.

Marna Palmer said...

I think this is a much better punishment than beating the crap out of them. If Chris Brown had licked Rihanna would his career be ruined?

CDAN Mod said...

yep, i agree rosario is unfortunate looking.

mooshki said...

What crack are you guys on? Rosario is hot!

licking works until they start wearing makeup.

jagerlilly said...

I think it's a great idea! Do that to your kid once in public and they'd probably straighten right up.

Ror said...

DN-

Is that expierence talking?!?

LOL

lutefisk said...

Who says Joe Simpson isn't licking them?

Anonymous said...

ror simply speculation.

Way to demonize a rather harmless story.

And it what world is Rosario ugly? Anyone who thinks she is, I challenge you to post a picture of yourself.

Any form of punishment is effective in some way as long as you stick to it. You have to enforce your rules not just make them. Here in my house I spank and put my child in time out. I was brought up that way and I don't see anything wrong with it.

jax said...

if my mom would have tried that just once, i would have lost my shit. i do not like germs,even from my mom.

lol..omg that shit totally would have worked on me!

bionic bunny! said...

would have worked on me, too. yuck! i can't stand ANYTHING on my face!

Wack said...

if i'm feeling obnoxious i lick my mom's cheek instead of kissing her on the cheek.

and then she tries to lick me back.

i usually run into my room.

but that licking thing would be effective.

I'm definitely going to lick my children if I ever have any. Hey, it's better than bitchslapping them!

Oh, and I think Rosario's pretty. :-)

Unknown said...

I actually thought this was really interesting. My two daughters would be horrified if I did this to them. They've grown accustomed to time outs, my yelling and frustration, my long speeches. They don't like losing priviledges but even that doesn't seem to shake them up too much.

I'm going to try it, when they seem clean and not sick...

Sporky said...

Gross. But yes, I do remember mom licking her finger to rub off dirt from our faces. She liked to take garlic pills, so yeah it was pretty fucking nasty and we hated it.

I guess it depends on where you lick the kid!

stiffkittens said...

lutefisk - Thanks for giving me a reason to bleach my mind...

OT: Humans are animals, animals lick their offspring. It's not that weird, really (better than hitting and screaming at them anywho).

Jungle007 said...

My 4 year old daughter would loooove this if i licked her face, but in another couple years, yes, I bet she would be mortified.

Rosario is a goddess! She's one of the only actresses I really would wanna hang out with, seems heavy cool.
I agree with Bad Fish, anyone who says otherwise should show us what hot really is, if she's not...

Miss X said...

My dad used to lick me on the face to be funny. He stopped once I started wearing make up. I thought it was gross as a pre-teen. And I'd be grossed out if he tried it again.

I'm smiling as I type this because I still love my dad! :)

canadachick said...

yah my mom would wet her finger and scrub dirt off my face - i hated it. Then when i had my son.one fine day...i found myself doing the same thing to his dirty face.And i knew i was officially a mom LOL

Years ago when my nephew was going thru his Power Turtle Mutant Ninja phase he kept picking fights with me. Of course, a ten year old will never win a fight with his uncle but he'd forget that until he realized he couldn't win the fight. Then he'd start crying, getting me into trouble with his mother. This happened a couple of times a week.

At one point I said, "no more fighting. I won't do this anymore." Didn't stop him. Finally I grabbed him one day, gave him the stinkeye and said, "from now on, every time you hit me or kick me...I'm gonna KISS you. Not just a little peck on the cheek but a great big sloppy gooey wet one and I don't care who sees it."

You never saw a child change his behavior so radically so fast.

Sporky said...

Hahahaha Jerry! Good story.
