Tough Love vs. Spanking - Good Argument

Lol good evening all. Hope all is well on this fine eve before spring begins. I have few layouts and free alphas coming up, but first wanted your take on this topic,
Most people think
it's 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 below of one of my sessions with my son, in case you would like to use the technique.

This works with grandchildren,
nieces, and nephews as well.

Haven't tried it on my husband yet.( I know that this has probably been seen all over the internet but I thought I would share it anyways.)

Well ok now for the layout and freebie. This is my husband Ron the one next to him is Baxter the dog.(that would be the one towards the top of the pic..lol I have trouble too lol).This was made with a kit called Sheep Baby Sheep by Cynthia over at My Digital Things Her kits are really cute so if you haven't checked her blog out you should do so.

The funny thing is that 99.9% of the pictures I have of my husband is of him sleeping. I made 2 sets of alpha from this kit . Alpha 1 was made with a font called Sans and Alpha 2 was made by me with a fat brush tip( lol am not very good with a brush or pencil for that matter). I really like the way alpha 1 turned out and alpha 2 is playful. Remember if you download no comment is necessary but please visit Cynthia's Blog. Here is the preview of the alphas.
The bottles are from Osahoney Her blog site is really cool too. She has lots of freebies.
Well I think I bored you all enough. ALPHA 1 & ALPHA 2

Thanks for lQQking
Happy Scrappin
