    This might help some of you.

    Most people nowadays think it improper to discipline children, so I have tried other methods to control my kids when they have had one of 'those moments.'


    Since I'm a pilot, one that I have found very effective is for me to just take the child for a flight in the plane during which I say nothing and give 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, my kids usually calm down and stop misbehaving after our flight together. I believe 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 my sessions with my son, in case you would like to use the technique. It also works well in cars.

    It's just to the right of the Philomena valve gauge.

    Glider I should give it a try with the car. A 6 and 4 year old are a full time job. I liken it to being in the Marines every day is a adventure.
    Thanks for the laugh.:lolrolling:lolrolling

    Know of some kids who need your type of discipline. Do you charge by the hour or the flight. Can you put two or more on at the same time for a discount?
