Time Out Dos and Don'ts

The tried and true method of giving a “Time Out” is one of the most popular tools available to parents when it comes to correcting problem behavior, but it’s not always as simple as it sounds.

There are plenty of situations where time-outs might not seem like a fitting strategy. After all, where’s your little one supposed to sit quietly if they’re acting up in a crowded movie theater, or in the middle of a restaurant?

Besides that, how do we know that our kids are actually learning what kind of behavior we’re expecting of them if we just put them into a quiet room for a few minutes?

I’m still a big believer in time-outs as long as they’re done mindfully and in the appropriate situation. Check out this week’s video and I’ll show you what I mean.
