of the American population
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 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.
