Tough Love

From Cathy. I laughed for a good ten minutes.

Also, tried this with Seth. It didn't work.

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.

Would have loved this advice at 3 pm today, during Jack's freakout at the movie theatre. I think it might have worked!!
