Partner of a Pilot
The Candid Diary of an Airline Pilot’s Girlfriend

A Pilot’s ‘unique’ blend of parenting advice (Aviation Humour)


I thought I’d post this purely because it brought a smile to my face at a difficult time. It was actually sent to me by my Mum.  I do hope you’ll enjoy it as much as I did!   Supernanny needs to take tips from this airline pilot’s ‘How To’ Guide on corrective parenting…

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 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…
