you mean, time outs? we started time outs at 14-15 months, using the play pen as the "penalty box". if he does something harmful (like hitting the dog, or doing something that endangers him) he goes into the penalty box (no toys, of course) for one minute. they say one minute per year of age is appropriate. we make it a point to ignore him when he is in there, so he's not getting any feedback for his negative behavior. he hates the penalty box, and now it only takes one or two times in there and he doesn't repeat the behavior again. good luck. :)
