Pilot's Fatherly Advice To His Son
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 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 also work with grand-kids.
