Rosario Dawson's Mom Gave Her a Licking

Rosario Dawson's Mom Gave Her a Licking

When it comes to odd methods of discipline, Rosario Dawson's mother, Celeste, certainly had some ideas. The actress recently told The New York Times how her mom doled out punishment for misbehavior. She 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.

Do you find this method of child rearing odd or inventive?
