Much has been said about "tough love" for misbehaving children.

Most of America thinks it improper to spank children, so my spouse and I have tried other methods to control our kids when they have one of "those moments".

One that we found very effective is for me just to take the child for a car ride and talk. They seem to calm down and stop misbehaving after our little ride together. I've included a photo of one of my sessions with our son, in case you would like to try the technique.
