All through the ages people from all over the world have been arguing over ways of disciplining your children. A lot of countries have actually banned spanking the child saying that this leads to psychological damage. Yet a lot of people continue to do so quoting such authorities as the Bible that says things like ‘spare the rod and spoil the child’.
I used to get whacked when I was a kid and I even spanked my kids when I though it absolutely necessary, albeit with the palm of my hand. Perhaps if there was another method? Well it seems that there is as presented by one frustrated parent.
Most people 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.
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.
