Tough Love vs. Spanking - Good Argument ...

Love vs. Spanking - Good Argument ...: "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 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 nephew, in case you would like to use the technique.

Your Friend
Ran across this and made me laugh.
I am sorry but I come from the old school where I feel a good spanking does much better then a time out.Maybe if I had real kids instead of dogs I would feel different.So am I right or wrong mom?
I hope I did not offend any of you with this.I would (NEVER) do this to any child.

This works with grandchildren, nieces, and nephews as well."

No idea where the above comments came from.I had gotten it as an email and foud it copied it and posted it.Seems I may have offended.
Think I will now add the extra added protection,like many others do.
Lesson learned.

Oh, goodness! Well, of course it is a joke and I found it funny. Sometimes we just need to laugh a one in their right mind is actually going to do this.

As for the spanking, I am against spanking children and do not spank mine. I was spanked as a child and all it does is cause humiliation. There are other ways to give direction without hurting a child. JMHO!

Mr. for the picture of my older hit the nail on the son was not too thrilled. lol!

Have a great evening!!

I thought it was funny. I use several different methods of discipline which spanking it one of those. It is usually the last one used.
