Once your child's "time is up" what do you do next? If anything. I am personally disappointed with the lack behavior and social skills in our children these days.
There seems to be no accountability for there actions? They seem unable to make eye contact, acknowledge their behavior, admit wrong doing, or make an apology. They are full of excuses, blaming of others and a sense of entitlement for their actions.
It is scary to me because I feel like, all these things should be taught in the home.
The perfect time to implement this education would be prior to taking the child OUT of time out. But from what I have seen, most parents hardly even acknowledge the kid once there time is up, as long as they have calmed down, they are free to go. Until of course, they do it AGAIN....well, maybe this is why.
What is your exit plan with timeouts?
