A PILOT FATHER'S TOUGH LOVE

A Pilot Father's Tough Love...
Most people today 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 method that I have found very effective
is for me to just take the child for a short flight
during which I say nothing and give the child
the opportunity to reflect on his or her behaviour.
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...
Should work with grandkids also.
