We know that all parents are different when it come to disciplining their children, but seriously! Actress Rosario Dawson grew up in New York City and shared the fact that her mother Isabel had a very odd way of keeping her daughter in line.

Rosario tried as a child to do what was right but when she was naughty, the actress told New York Times,

“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.”

Is it just us or would most people have kept this a closely guarded secret? Have you ever heard of such a thing?
