Time-Out Discipline: Time-outs can effectively stop behaviors that are especially hard to discipline. It can also serve as disciplinary action for a particularly aggressive or impulsive kid! The discipline problems timeout can solve include everything from a temper tantrum to cursing to name-calling to spitting to horsing around to biting.

Time-Out By Age: Time-out procedures change slightly as children age. The most important thing is that all caregivers follow the same timeout procedures in order for the timeout technique to be consistent.

Time-Out Activities: If your child is older and is very active or is very aggressive, requiring this child to sit alone may set-off even more angry, aggressive, or destructive actions. This child could need a physical action instead of a quiet time for timeout.

Time-Out Location: For the time-out penalty to be effective, it must be unpleasant for your child and administered in a calm, cool , and collected manner. It will help you stay calm if you choose timeout locations before they are needed.

Time-Out Mistakes: What if you have tried the time-out system with your kids, but still feel like it just doesn’t work? You did it wrong. In some way they continued to receive attention or continued to feel they were in a power position. Mistakes examined with examples here.
