Tough Love

This came in my email today. Aren’t you glad I’m your Papper, Phillip, not this guy? :-)

Tough Love vs. Spanking – Good Argument

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 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.

Included is a photo below of one of my sessions with my son, in case you would like to use the technique.
