Parenting and Discipline Techniques:
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
