Tough Love vs. Spanking

I got this letter from a friend today.  Thought I should share it…

Dear Jared,

It seems that these days most Americans think it is improper to spank children, so over the years I tried other methods to control my kids when they had 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.

This worked so well for my children that I now use the method on my grandchildren.  I’ve included a photo below of one of my sessions  with my grandson, in case you would like to use the technique.

Sincerely,
A Friend
