I was talking about this on the air this morning and there was so much response that I decided to post it here too.  My friend's young son called her "the B-word," so she said he couldn't go trick-or-treating for Halloween. Is that too harsh? Should she let him go? Or should she be consistent and make her threats of punishment have merit?

The general consensus from both the phones and Facebook was that she should stick to her guns and make him stay home.  What do you think?
