Parents have a lot of different ways of disciplining their children. Some hit, others put their kids on time out, and some….lick?

In a recent interview with The New York Times Style Magazine, actress Rosario Dawson said,

My mom licked me – that was her punishment. If I was a little uppity or if I didn’t listen or if she wanted to get my attention, she’d lick the side of my face or under my armpit. My mom’s a six-foot-tall amazon and she’d say, ‘‘You came out of my vagina and I own every part of you,” and she’d lick me like I was her wee pup and she was a lioness. It was humiliating and really intense. Very primal. It’s not spanking, but it definitely works.

Have you ever heard of a punishment like this? Would you do it to your kids? Tell us!
