When do time-outs start to be effective and should be implemented? I know people say 1 minute for each year of age, but when to start. My little guy will hit my sliding glass door or throw toys at the dog, so I have scolded him and when he fails to heed my warning, I will put him in the corner for a timeout, but I don't know if I am doing wrong by him. Advice?
