I have two children aged 4 and 22 months. My question is regarding the naughty step. My daughter (4 year old) has been using the naughty step since she was 2 years old, a minute for every year, we use the oven timer so it beeps when her time is up so she knows when she can get off. Unfortunately no matter how hard we try she still does not listen and still throws tantrums and runs away when she is on the step.
I am after some advice on exactly how other parents use the naughty step/chair, how their children behave whilst on the step/chair and do you have any back ups incase the step doesn't work?
I am just asking advice on naughty step discipline, please do not suggest smacking/spanking as it is personally something I do not believe in, I trust that the naught step works I just haven't figured out the right way to use it!
