One of those days

I've been saving this email a friend sent me for a day just like today!

Tough Love vs. Spanking – One Person’s Perspective

Most of the American populace thinks it improper to spank children, so I have tried other methods to control my kids when 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. Eye to eye contact helps a lot too.

I've included a photo below of one of my sessions with my son, in case you would like to use the technique.

*Don't lie. You're totally laughing, aren't you?*

And all at 99 miles per hour. Poor kid.

Yes, I was totally laughing!
