How can I do Time out Right?

Time out is a great way to separate the child from a situation that is or has the potential to go wrong. When putting a child in timeout, try to make sure they are in a place that is not stimulating or interactive. Their bedroom or playroom can be too tempting for them to get up and play. The time out should be brief. A good rule of thumb is one minute for every year they are old (for example, a 3 year old would have a 3-minute time out). At the end of the time out, review why they got put in time out and what would have been a better choice.
