The lull before the storm.....something funny for you all!

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 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.

Ah hahahaha! I was reading wondering how you were supposed to have that "eye to eye contact" while driving...

by the look in the mirror you might have had your door open by the light. Pretty scary. Then you had to chang his pants. I'd try another avenue

My guess is this is staged. The car appears to be on the sholder of the road. But the point was well made.
