Is it right to put chilli powder on a childs tongue for swearing?

my mum makes my 3 year old brother eat chilli powder if he swears. I don't think it's right since he heard those words from my parents, I mean you can't teach a child something and expect them not to use it. She swears all the time, and they even used to laugh and incourage him when he said 'sh!t'.. show more my mum makes my 3 year old brother eat chilli powder if he swears.
