Of course, in the car is where you want them to be especially obedient, considering that you're traveling around in two tons of metal on wheels, with other drivers on the road who may or may not be following texting laws.

So what's a parent to do? Well, you could take a page out of this dad's parenting book, and threaten to eject your kid into outer space if he doesn't sit still.

Take a look at what one dad did to keep his son from squirming out of his booster seat in the car.

Oh my gosh, is that little boy not the cutest? I'm sure this vid will get its fair share of hate, but come on. It's obvious they have a very loving relationship, and the kid seems safe and secure in how much he loves his mom and dad.

And what about his little question for reassurance at the end there? "Daddy, if I say I love you, and I kiss you ... and I want to play with you? ... That means I'll never go into space and you shouldn't push that button."

Dad's response is perfect. He says, "I'll never push that button ... unless it's a real emergency."

What do you think of this dad's attempt to get his kid to behave in the car?
