Timeout Discipline for the Blended Family
By Jan Wilson
Blended Family: Try timeout as a very effective and fair form of discipline.
Time-Out as a Discipline.
Time-out 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 child’s disruptive behavior.
If your child is very angry or actually having a tantrum, time-outs can be a very effective form of discipline.
Time-out 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.
