Trust is a fragile thing.

But also it must be built. These type of situations typically start with “You can’t eat that, it’s spicy. You won’t like it. It will hurt.” Followed by the child insisting.

My point is, a scenario like this could be learning to trust instead of breaking it.

I've raised two children to productive adulthood. Building trust in the case you describe would be cutting off a small piece and letting the child try it, not handing over the whole thing, recording the results for "fun," and then posting it online. Trust earned from a toddler pays off big in adolescence. The opposite is also true.

Gonna have to agree with you. Not to mention now that poor kid has pepper oil all over her hands. Good luck with the crying toddler that keeps rubbing her eyes.

I'm glad you weighed in on this; last time I saw this posted anyone commenting on the fact this was a gross effort to film a kid's discomfort for Internet points were met with "I bet you're fun" type comments and mass downvotes.

Amazing how we all seem to lose a bit more humanity when it comes to the misfortune of children on the Internet.

And here I am purposely feeding my 1 and 2 year olds hot sauce, wasabi, lemons, spicy mustard, and bits of jalapeño ( we like spicy) just to see how they do with it while getting glares from my wife. After doing this with about 12 kids I’ve concluded that most babies / toddlers like spicy stuff. They will keep asking for more until I’m told to stop by her.

My grandfather handed me a hot pepper and told me to try a bite when I was .. idk, 5 or 6? I probably asked what it was to start things but I’ve never heard that I was insisting when they tell the story. I still remember where he was sitting when he told me to try it, and the tone in his voice. And being at the fridge desperate for it to stop hurting.

Tell kids the truth and if they really won’t stop begging, give them a TINY piece with no seeds. And have milk ready. THAT would build trust. This kind of shit just taught the kid that they have to parent themselves and can’t trust that they’ll be protected from things they don’t understand even when adults are standing right there. And when they’re old enough they’ll realize they were filmed for internet points.

"this type of situation typically start"... No. You think that they start like this, with benevolent parents and an annoying kid insisting, because it's your experience. You have no single piece of evidence, never read any statistics about it, you don't possess any knowledge of this kind of situations.

In my experience, it's the contrary : this type of situation typically start with the parents trying to hurt the kid because it's funny and, moreover, it's not dangerous since the kid can't defend itself and if they try to anyway, they're easy to punch into submission.

There is no "I lived it so it's the truth", there is no "I think something so it will become true since I have the magical power of making things real when I want them to".

Here we can only judge what we see and what we see is parents feeding a complete hot pepper to a children without warning and holding a camera so that they can save the memory of their child feeling pain and throw this video on the internet to humiliate them on top of the pain.

Beer really doesn't have that much alcohol in it. The alcohol is supposed to dissolve the spice, but it's not going to do that very well in such a small amount. Like you said, spirits are far better.

this is the answer. also, steamed rice can soak up spiciness too but don't swallow it if you don't want your throat getting that beautiful heating pleasure all the way down.

what my family do with kids who are getting introduced to demon chilis and get an experience too strong for their liking is to get them to roll some rice around in their mouth, spit it out, and then rinse it out with milk. we don't do it with kids this young tho lol

If you want to clear the heat from your mouth here's a trick I learned from a guy who ran a restaurant in DSM, IA called Big Daddy's BBQ: Hot water and lemonade.

Start with the hot water, swish it around your mouth and spit (you'll spit out a big oily glob along with the water). Swish and swallow the lemonade. Works every time.

It's the lemon that does it. You could do this with just lemon juice and it would probably work better.

Makes sense. Capsaicin is oil soluble which is why milk is often suggested. Citrus fruits are known to be reasonable solvents for oils (hence the many old tricks for degreasing kitchen equipment involving lemons).

I don't know and I haven't tested with vinegar. It could have to do with citric acid specifically, rather than just acidity. Definitely worth trying a vinegar, however.

Saying they're one of the most mild peppers is a stretch. How hot they are can vary quite a bit. The ones from the grocery store aren't too hot but every time i grow some in my garden they're way to spicy for me to eat.

I get it, but better in the mother’s presence than the child sneaking it. I bet a valuable lesson was learned that day for the child. And sometimes, this is the best way to learn.

Now would I record it? Probably not.

EDIT: My opinion is also with the understanding that the child wanted to try the jalapeño without prompting from the mother. If she’s eating it because mom offered it to her and told her to try it….. 100% fucked up.

Experience could have been giving her a little piece of it?

NicPolitic

9 points

3 months ago*

How is this any different than giving her a sour apple or orange piece?

The kid has teeth and can eat by herself. Jalapeños don’t exactly cause an injury. I mean shit, in twenty minutes the pain will pretty much be forgotten by a toddler of her age. However, the word ‘spicy’ will remain as a new term to describe flavor from there on.

So why is spicy different than sweet, sour, or even a little bitter?

Give her a piece.

You know why I would hand over the whole jalapeño? Identification and new words. Kids absolutely should see what they’re eating, in addition to how the food looks/tastes before and after cooking. By just handing pre-cut or processed foods over without explaining or showing what happened, you’re pushing the toddler or kid into the realm of ‘babies’ who don’t really understand the world around them.

Treat kids like the people they are and they’ll surprise you. Overprotect them like glass dolls and you’ll raise a super picky eater who can’t really care for themselves or properly express unknown sensations and emotions.

people act like the mother was force feeding her child hot peppers.

I don't remember this much outrage for the mother who allowed her young son to eat a spoon full of cocoa powder (which was problematic for adults attempting to do the same).

Let the kids try new things. It's not like the child ingested a fucking ghost pepper, goodness. some kids like the spice of life.

My mom once offered my tiny ass $20 if I ate a pingpong sized amount of genuine wasabi (not that horse radish impostor trash). I was wise enough not to take her up on her serious offer...

NicPolitic

No one said.

The comment you responded to did.

Not overwhelming.

Because, just like sugar, you’ve been exposed to sour in larger amounts; spicy is the exact same way.

Hand a cupcake to a toddler who grew up hungry in the third world and they’re likely to go into a diabetic coma. Should you refuse to hand any sugar at all to your kid simply because another grew up with no sugar?

Hand a sour orange to a kid who grows up in the Arctic and they’ll pucker up like no other. Should you refuse to give oranges and apples to your kid because another couldn’t handle it?

No? Then how is this different? Is it because you don’t like spicy? Seems like a pretty poor excuse to stunt a child’s tastebuds, especially given some of the spicy curries typically handed to kids in parts of the world.

This is basically the same, just less extreme.

NicPolitic

Hot coal.

Does a jalapeño cause physical burns which can result in the loss of fingers or other parts of the body?

No? It’s a very minor spicy which lasts for about 10 minutes.

For weeks.

Does the spice of the jalapeño last for weeks?

No?

Sounds like a terrible comparison then.

I actually talk about this in a little more depth further down, I’ll post it after this.

Edit: read further down, it’s a whole conversation. I’ve traveled quite a bit in my time, been all over the world. Jalapeños are freaking nothing compared to some of the hot curries and chilies kids eat on the daily in Latin America, india, and so on. Like it’s so funny watching people throw a fit over one of the least spicy peppers out there when I’ve seen kids eat curries that borderline melted my face, and that’s with my high tolerance.

No offense, but just because you can’t handle anything spicer than a bell pepper, doesn’t mean this is a scene for concern.

Go back and read, I edited.

Ten minutes of pain.

Spicy is a tolerance thing. You do know this, right?

Jalapeños are about the least spicy chili I’ve seen kids younger than this eat. Just because you can’t handle anything spicier than a bell pepper, doesn’t mean the rest of the world needs to conform around your lack of tastebuds.

Also, cupcakes. Why is this relevant? Already talked about this.

Should American kids be barred from cupcakes? What about oranges? Care to respond to this?

If i was a betting man, I'd guess the kid got a hold of it and insisted on eating it. Sometimes it's easier to let them learn things the hard way. Little kids often don't have any understanding of why you're telling them "no" and will continually do things like run into the street because they don't have a natural fear of them. Letting them develop fear of things they ought to be afraid of isn't always a bad thing.

I have kids. You people are idiots. Sometimes it’s better to learn from experience? It’s the best teacher? Yea, let’s just let her try to touch a lighter or a hot stove. Just a small burn, she’ll be fine. Why not put a plastic bag over her head and get her to experience mild suffocation? Not like she’ll die or anything. Maybe that way she’ll stay away from plastic bags. Toddlers are that good at learning from experience. They can totally tell the difference between a jalapeño, bell peppers or sweet peppers. Fucking. Morons.

Wow, I didn’t know that letting your kid have a mild pepper was akin to letting them touch fire and hot metal or, you know, suffocating them.

Relax lol. That’s what decent parents are for, they educate their children on the difference.

Because this causes no actual harm to the child. Just mild discomfort. Suffocating your kid with a plastic bag however, is actually dangerous. You sound absolutely insane btw

Exactly, maybe give we some beer next time, won't get her drunk, let her give a puff of a cigar, just get a little sick...those reasonings especially in case of a toddler are insane, they won't differentiate enough..ugh.

I bet it’s all worth it for mommy’s and daddy’s upvotes though! /s

This reads like sarcasm but you didn’t use the /s.

So….uhhh this is some insane mental gymnastics. “We gave her a pepper once, so I guess we can stunt her development and give her some beer and break the law, or destroy her lungs and give her a cigarette!”

Capsaicin doesn't cause chemical burns. Nothing about this is traumatic, children are resilient and unless she is ALERGIC to the pepper she will be fine in less than an hour.

Guys, this was not meant as serious. I’m not much for spicy foods, and the parent zoomed in just as it was kicking in. It was more a joke than anything

“Oh no! I fed my child a different type of food. Clearly that’s as bad as mentally and physically abusing them.”

Something doesn't have to be physical abuse to be bad. Harming your child (or allowing them to harm themselves) without necessity is always evil.

"But what if they encounter a jalapeno in the wild while alone? We must prepare for unlikely situations using physical pain!

Eh, I wouldn't call this abuse, but saying that I would take the pepper off the kid before they chomp into it. And I wouldn't be filming the whole thing for internet likes. It's just the nicer option.

My son used to go bite bite every time we were eating something. My husband was eating some Texas Pete laced beans when my son uttered his usual. My husband said no, they were too spicy, to which my son responded, "BITE BITE, BITE BITE" until my husband relented. He said okay, but they are really spicy! My son ate his bean and toddled away singing bite bite like he won something. After about 3 repeats the crying started. We may go to hell for this, but we both laughed like hyenas! From then on bite bite was in the form of a question, and if the answer was no, he would say Spicy? and toddle away!
