Love this e-mail I got from Brett today

I've gotten this one before, but it makes me laugh every time!

Tough Love vs. Spanking - Good Argument

Most of the American populace thinks it is 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 works with grandchildren, nieces, and nephews as well.

Okay.. so I read the little message and I was just about to add it to my "chronicles of parental smartness".. then I saw the pic. LOL! You crack me up.

But really, do you think a car ride would work?
