tough love, and urban legends zjoy

Tough Love vs. Spanking - Good Argument 

Most people think 
it's   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. 


This works with grandchildren, 
nieces, and nephews as well.
