Tough Love vs. Spanking ~ (a psychological conundrum)
Most of America’s populace think it 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.
They usually calm down and stop misbehaving after our car ride together.
I’ve included a photo below of one of my sessions with my son, in case you would like to use the technique.
