Many parents put their children in time-out to stop their bad behavior. Time-out enables parents to discipline their kids without hitting or yelling. By remaining calm, you set a positive example for your children to manage their own strong feelings. Time-outs give children a chance to separate and calm down. Use this discipline method for big problems like hitting, kicking, and out-of-control screaming-or when all else fails. Here are best practices for using time-out to take control:
Remember: Time-out also can be useful for parents who need to calm down. It doesn't hurt to step back from a heated situation before responding.
Through time-out, children learn to gain self-control, and you get a break as well. Separating your child from a bad situation stops the undesired behavior, and it gives you an opportunity to calm down and redirect your child. You'll both feel better and will be more prepared to return to the action at hand.
