Controversial Childcare

I think it's fair to say that most of us in Blogland think it's improper to spank children, so I have tried other methods to control my child when he has one of 'those moments.'
One that I found effective is for me to just take him 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 child usually calms down and stops 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.

PS - This works with grandchildren, nieces, and nephews as well.

Before anybody gets on their high-horse .... this post is a JOKE, a SPOOF, it's NOT REAL, and I would NEVER drive my son round on the front of my car.

I'd put him on the roof instead as he might block my view

I agree, the roof rack is so much more practical,

think of it as a very useful training to make them really cool at college as a natural ability to roof surf will definitely stand them in good stead!

I am simply appalled at your post!

How very dare you even consider giving your child such a bad haircut!

No wonder he was in a bad mood!

Shame on you.

Well this is harmonie again...Emma that is CLASSIC. I absoulty luv it... Now I could tottaly see how ANY child would start to behave better if you said "want to get in the CAR."!!! I might show my kids that and tell them that is what is going to happen if the talk back to me one more time!!! Its a joke people don't get your panites all in a bundle..
