Do Timeouts work?

Kara - posted on 11/06/2009 ( 1 mom has responded )




We have been trying timeouts for my nearly 3 yr old son. It can be frustrating because he will rarely stay where we put him for his timeout. Does anyone else have this problem? Any suggestions? These" terribles twos" suck!

Each child will be different on what works for them. If you are doing time outs and he gets up, you just take him back each time. He will realize that you are not giving up and will eventually stay put. Only make his time outs for two or three minutes and make sure you explain why he had to go to time out.
