Tough Love vs. Spanking - Good Argument

Tough Love vs. Spanking - Good Argument



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.

I've included a photo below of one of my sessions with my son, in case you would like to use the technique.



Sincerely, Your Friend

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

I can not tell a lie. I did not set it up. It was posted by a friend on another forum. But knowing him, he probably got it from somewhere else too.

Still, nice ripoff of a good joke setup & spike. Who really has original riffs, nowadays...everything is an inside joke of someone elses inside joke.

When I saw "tough love v. spanking", I thought this was about something quite different.

hahah.

Today i was at dollarama, where you always see rotten screaming kids. Today, it was two hellions running up and down the aisles, pulling halloween masks off the shelves...there's glass and stuff on the shelves, and finally i said HEY! The older one says"

I'm playing with my nephew.
Me: Do you realize you almost ran into me? This is a store. Go play outside.
Kid: Take it easy lady...we're playing
Me You ripped stuff off the shelves, you haven't paid for it kid...
the mother comes over, and all this woman needs is a banjo. She asks, What's going on?

Me: Your kids are running around up and down the aisle. There's glass and breakables
Moron Mom: So?
me: Well, they could run into someone or hurt themselves. This is a grocery store;
MM: so?

Duh...maybe if she got off the phone for 3 seconds and paid attention to her kids?
Hey lady,your kids are drinking iodine!
so?
Hey lady your kids are on the railroad tracks!
so?

I fear for the kids of these dingbats...how about putting THEM on the windshield LOL....

Trust me I won't. My advice would be:
use birth control, get a job or career, do something besides breed, get off the phone and be a parent, stop revolving your entire life around your uterus, get an education, be responsible...etc. Nothing anyone would want to hear.

I want my tough love and spankings too! The thread doesn't deliver. I think I'll go see a dentist.
