An Alternative to Spanking

A friend of ours passed this on to us. It's worth a read...

Most people think it is improper to spank children, so I have tried other methods to control my kids when they have one of "those moments." One that I have found effective is for me to just take the child for a car ride and talk.

Some say it's the vibrations from the car; others say it's the time away from distractions such as TV, video games, the computer, 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 have included a photo below of one of my sessions with my son, in case you would like to use the technique.

Hope this made you smile. It is, by the way, a joke. In the words of the Mythbusters guys: "Don't try this at home."
