Tough Love vs. Spanking

This letter came across my email today and I found it quite funny, so I thought I would share it with you.....

TOUGH LOVE VS. SPANKING.............

Most people think it improper to spank children, so I have tried other methods to control 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, 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.

Sincerely,

Your Friend

Oh, I'm smiling at the picture. I think I shouldn't be, I remember how stressful times could be. Jerry used to take Ted with him on an errand, just anywhere the two of them could go, when he got ornery. He just needed his dad's attention all by himself. It worked wonders! Such a simple solution to a wonderful boy being a brat!
