Smacking kids‏
« on: Sun 08 Jun 2008 16:58:04 »
The Majority of parents in the UK today, think it improper to smack children. The other day I was talking to one of my colleagues 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 smacking and my friend explained that no,  he does not smack 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.
