Spanking Children?

I have been trying for about a week now to post a video of Emma's kindergarten program and a few pics to go along with it, with no luck. I'm not very good at this computer stuff. So as I continue to work out that problem, I thought I would post this because it is hilarious! I found it on my friends blog, and with hers being private, I asked her if I could use it also so enjoy!

Spanking children

Most of America's populace thinks it's improper to spank children. The other day I was talking to one of my younger buddies about methods used to discipline children.We talked about "time outs", grounding, holding back "rewards" until the child displayed desired behavior etc.

One of the things we discussed was the act of spanking and my friend explained that no, he does not spank any of his children. He explained that what he does is to take the misbehaving child out for a ride in the car and talk. He said that usually this works and that the child calms down fairly quickly and really doesn't take too much time.

By removing the child, in this case his son, from the immediate situation and providing a change of scenery, the child is allowed to focus on something different. Once the child has the opportunity to change perspective, things get better quickly and the child has better understanding of his place within the family and begins to understand the family's concept of acceptable behavior.

He kindly shared a picture of the process which I share with you now.
