What Are the Best Time-Out Locations for Parents to Choose?

Jan Wilson

Parents and Parenting: A parent should also keep in mind that they are not trying to frighten a child into submission.

Good information for parents:

2. Parents choose a location to send children every time they go to timeout.

3. Parents choose a spot that is safe for the child.

4. Parents choose a boring spot away from all action and any attention from other family members.

5. Parents choose a location that can be reached quickly.

Parents try not to use the following places:

1. Kitchens or bathrooms: Too many potentially dangerous objects in these areas, such as knives, poisons, hot water, etc.

2. Basement or other dark spots: These places are too scary to be used for time-out.

3. The yard: Let’s face it–the yard is always fun and sometimes dangerous.

This leaves the bedroom unless you have a better place such as a study or a hallway with lights that can be closed off.

Time-Out at Home of Others

When visiting others, parents use a porch, a hallway, or the back yard if it is safe.

Time-Out in Public Places

Parents can choose a restroom or even a car to work in a public place.

Parents Tip: Don’t leave your child alone in a public place. Although you’ll still ignore him and withhold your attention, keep him well in sight.

Time-Out Caution

A child that suffers from separation anxiety when her parents leave her, should have a time-out spot that is not isolated from her parents, particularly when in a strange place.
