Default Re: I'm Learning-can you help me? ("Time-out")

For us, we do 'if you can't control yourself, come sit by Mommy'. They will come to me, and sit beside me until they (and I) feel they can control themselves again. Great thing is, I can do that at the park, the store, home, church, etc.

I don't consider it time out, b/c I don't do '4 minutes b/c you're 4 years old' etc. And I don't send them off to their room or a certain stool etc. I just want them to settle down and choose to 'treat others the way you want to be treated'.

I always found it ridiculous to say 'You did X, now go sit for 4 min.' It's like they can do whatever, as long as they're willing to 'serve their time' in the time out spot etc.
In Christ,
Joy
