Just heard this great suggestion for anyone still going on vacation with Tweens or teenagers in the backseat. When they start to haggle, fuse, and fight, calmly pull the car to the side of the road. Then mom and dad vigorously begin to make out.
I hear it will stop even the worst of back seat fighting.

Wish I had thought of this back in the day!

If my parents did this, they would have a new problem on their hands as my sister and I would immediately bolt out of the car, running and screaming down the highway!

But interesting solution. LOL

Dang as a single dad this will not work.

Moo, you and I will have to do that fake make out session where you wrap your hands all the way around yourself and make smoochie noises.

I find that if I just start talking about sex, it does the job. Gives them an education, too. Start telling them the definitions of body parts and sex acts, talk about all the STDs and how not to get them...I never get very far. They're learning in bits and pieces.

I have to politely disagree... Now mom and dad can have a nice quiet vacation alone while the kids find their own way home

Ok. This thread is all sorts of awesome!

I like TR's suggestion. Duct tape fixes everything.

As the old saying goes: "Silence is golden. Duct tape is silver."

My sister and I are 21 months apart. As kids we used to fight like crazy until our mom came up with the ultimate solution. First she would talk about how we'd feel if something happened to the other one, trying to guilt us and make us sad. IF that didn't work she'd make us KISS! UGH! And she'd say ... "no, really kiss like you love each other." ONE time was ALL it took and we never let her catch us fighting again. We still fought, just not in front of her!

When my kids (16 months apart) would fight on long trips, I would institute The Quiet Game--whoever speaks soonest loses. My kids were so good at it, I would forget we were playing and start to speak. Then it was immediate fighting again!

Fixed it for you:

I'm up for solution #1, just sayin.

I have been known to pull over, stop the car, and get out. Kids are inside wondering WTF is going on, I'm outside enjoying a few moments of fresh air & peace.

OMG.

I am so doing this. If only to see the horror on their faces. They make gagging noises if we even give each other a peck on the cheek.
