I got this via email in 2005 and thought it needed revisiting in view of my kids and their ever increasing activity levels.
Tough Love vs. Spanking (a psychological conundrum) Many of America's populace think 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. They 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. Sincerely,
