~ Tough Love vs. Spanking ~
(a psychological conundrum)

It seems that these days most Americans think it is improper to spank children, so over the years I tried other methods to control my kids when they had one of "those moments."

One that I found effective is for me to just take the child for a car ride and talk.

They usually calm down and stop misbehaving
after our car ride together.

This worked so well for my children that I now use the method on my grandchildren.

I've included a photo below of one of my sessions
with my grandson, in case you would like to use the technique.

Sincerely,
A Friend

Ha ha, good one!

You'll be pleased to know that having major discussions with your child is fabulous *in* the car. Seriously. Me and Kid have the best discussions about the most difficult topics in the car. She can't get away and I have to follow through, you see. Now you must understand that we use some serious euphemisms, no direct language about sexual topics...we might be embarrassed. :) We talk. Seriously. I recommend it. Just be prepared to "euphemise" so as to avoid embarrasment on both parts. Y'know, the point comes across without the agony...on either of our parts.

Its been almost 3 years since I first saw this doctored photo, check snoops.com about it.

Notice how the knuckles of his left hand are not locked? Why at 99 MPH is the collar not flapping?
