Dad fed kids soap, forced them to do push-ups for 30 min straight as punishment


A Kentucky dad has been charged with criminal abuse after allegedly making his kids eat soap and forcing them into unreasonable workouts as punishment.

James Kidwell was arrested Monday, according to a Rockcastle District Court complaint warrant obtained by the Daily News.

He’s accused of forcing his 11-year-old and 13-year-old children to do push-ups for a half hour straight. One of the kids had rug burns from the activity.

Other punishments for talking back and breaking house rules handed down by Kidwell from Jan. 24 to 28 include allegedly making them eat soap. One child had a sore in his mouth from the soap.

Kidwell, 40, also punched one of the children, causing a bruise on his chest, according to the complaint.

And the 340-pound dad, currently being held at the Rockcastle County Detention Center, made his kids stand two steps from a wall and lean on it with their heads for between 15 and 30 minutes. He’s being held on a $10,000 bond.
