Its not like she gets into a lot of trouble. Maybe 3 or 4 times a weeks tops. But she knows when she's doing something that would get her a "time out" and she'll go ahead and do that thing and then promptly put herself in "time out". At first we were just glad that she at least grasped the concept but now it just doesn't seem like an effective tool. Baby dolls and balls are put in the time out spot daily~" they're not listening" she tells me! Any suggestions of alternatives we could try to get the point across that there are consequences to undesired behavior?
