I spank my son but I also threaten to tickle him instead and it seems to diffuse the anger of the moment and he will willing do whatever it is that I asked him to do. When you are mad it's hard to get the silly face on but it works.
Editor's Note: I totally agree! It's hard to remember to do stuff like that, but when you do, it almost always works like a charm! --Delila
