Their dentist might disagree.

I'm getting the impression I must not slap or spank as hard as some on the forum because my children aren't at risk for any actual injury other than a sting. No dental issues from a pop on the mouth (aka slap on the cheek). If my slaps or spanks ever carried an actual risk of injury to my child, I absolutely would find a different method of correcting them.

Of course, that is a part of parental care.

So by "mouth", you mean "cheek"? OK, I was interpreting that literally.

Maybe pop in the mouth is used differently in different locations? I've heard many parents say they popped their kid in the mouth and it means a slap to the cheek or sometimes a two finger tap to the lips. When Lily was little and discovered she could get quite the reaction from biting someone I tried spanking her but it was the two finger pop to her lips that ended the biting.

I think I'll try the dental line the next time my Aunt pops me one.

When I was growing up, it was called getting your mouth smacked, and it meant the cheek. Never really thought about it not being accurate before now

If someone is going to punch you in the mouth they usually say they're going to knock your teeth down your throat.

If I hit my child in the actual mouth I think I can safely say I would not talk about it in a public setting. I've never heard a parent say to a child, "keep it up and I'll slap you on the cheek." It's generally more along the lines of "watch your mouth or I'll slap it." I had wrongly assumed everyone understood a pop in the mouth or an "I'll slap your mouth" knows it's actually the cheek that is being slapped.

You know what I heard one time in Walmart? A mom was being very angry at her kid and she said to her kid if she didn't shut up she would be pooping out teeth only she didn't say poop but swore. I don't know how come a mom would talk to her kid like that.

Yes, that is pretty awful. Some parents get that way, unfortunately.
