what are your thoughts on time out for a child.

Feb 22nd, 2015

Time-out is misunderstood and misused, but used correctly, it can be an effective tool to change behavior. Many parents utilize time outs for disciplinary type occasions, which can be beneficial if conducted in the right fashion depending on the child’s age. Time-out is a term from sports and it's meant to be used in the same way. The coach doesn't wait until the game is lost to call a time-out. He uses it as an opportunity for the team to regroup and get back into balance before everything falls apart. That's how parents should think of it--as a way for their child to regain equilibrium before he falls apart. The goal is to help children learn to regulate their own behavior.
