Aaron's Aunt Tonya sent this to us. I must admit that I laughed and laughed when I saw the picture at the bottom. I had to share it with you.
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 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 seems imaginable when your babies are little. But.... when they start to back talk, this may actually cross your mind, even to those of us who do still practice the old fashioned spanking. Of course, no, you wouldn't really do it, but I bet it would work.
