Hump day humor: tough love vs. spanking

My brother sent this one to me. The photo has been around the internet, but I've never seen it in this context. It gave me a chuckle. [disclaimer: this is a joke...and not my child. I do NOT condone nor do I recommend this type of discipline.]

Tough Love vs. Spanking

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 (click icon below) of one of my sessions with my son, in case you would like to use the technique.


  1. LOL! Now, am I just tired or did you somehow figure out a way for that disclaimer to come up AFTER the button is pushed - because I surely fell for this hook line & sinker! ;-)

  2. I think we took the same parenting class!!
