Disciplining the Children

Leave a comment

Most people nowadays think it improper to discipline children, so a friend of mine has tried other methods to control his kids when they have had one of ‘those moments.’

Since he is a pilot, one that he has found very effective is to just take the child for a flight in the plane during which he says nothing and gives the child the opportunity to reflect on his or her behavior.

I don’t know whether it’s the steady vibration from the engines, or just the time away from any distractions such as TV, video games, computer, iPod, etc.

Either way, his kids usually  calm down and stop misbehaving after the flight together.

He believes  that eye to eye contact during these sessions is an important element in  achieving the desired results.

I’ve included a  photo below of one of his sessions with his son, in case you would like to use  the technique.

It also works well in cars

I love the best in people and I enjoy a good story or joke. In our leisure time some serious stuff is important too so that it can be mixed in with the funnies otherwise our smile becomes too fixed. A real smile, a real laugh is the best tonic for our living times
