Raising Boys: Timeouts can be very effective and powerful motivators for disciplining boys, but they must be used correctly and consistently if they are to work.

Timeout is easy to understand in sports--it is a brief interruption of the action.

In discipline, it is a brief (you hope) interruption of your son's disruptive behavior.

If your son is very angry or actually having a tantrum, time-outs can be a very effective form of discipline.

Timeout is a loss-of-privilege penalty.

It is used to stop behaviors, not start behaviors.

It works because it takes the child away from the action, attention, or toy rather than taking the attention, action or toy away from the child.

Timeout is used to stop a negative behavior by removing your child from the area of trouble, then placing the child in an isolated area.

This is effective because it immediately stops the disruptive behavior.

It is unpleasant for the child because it takes away his  freedom to play and interact with friends and family.

And it is safe because it serves as a cooling-off time for both the parent and the boy.

 

 

Raising confident boys and parenting boys to become happy, healthy men.
