Most of the American population thinks it improper to spank children, so I have
tried other methods to control my kids when they have one of 'those moments.'

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 car
ride together. Eye to eye contact helps a lot too.
