Alternative To Spanking

When your child has one of those moments

Most of America's populace thinks it very improper to spank children, so my spouse and I have tried other methods to control our kids when they have one of 'those moments.' One that we found very effective is for me to just take the child for a car ride and talk. They usually calm down and stop misbehaving after our little car ride together. I've included the photo below of one of my sessions - with our son - in case you would like to use the technique. It's very effective!
