This came across my email. I've been holding it to use on a Thankful Thursday as I am almost certain it applies.
Tough Love vs. Spanking - Good Argument
Most of America 's populace think it improper to spank children, so I have tried other methods to control my kids w hen they have one of 'those moments.
One that I found effective is for me to just take the child for a car ride and talk.
Some say it's the vibration from the car, others say it's the time away from any distractions such as TV, Video Games, Computer, IPod, etc.
Either way, my kids usually calm down and stop misbehaving after our car ride together.
I've included a photo below of one of my sessions with my son, in case you would like to use the technique.
Pretty THANKFUL this THURSDAY I've never thought of this before... lest that by MY KID on the window huh???
I think this will work with grandchildren, nieces, and nephews as well.
