Wordless Wednesday: Tough Love
A friend of mine passed this along and I wanted to share it with y'all. (There IS a picture!)

Most of America's populace thinks it very improper to spank children, so I have tried other methods to control our kids when they have one of "those moments".

One that I 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.

Its very effective!

Thanks for the laugh Jacque! Here's the original link.
