Understand what a time-out is – and isn’t

A time-out isn’t a punishment. It’s an opportunity for your child to learn how to cope with frustration and modify his behavior.

While your child is in a time-out, he’s on his own, so try to let him sit in solitude for a few moments. Any attention from you, positive or negative, will serve as reinforcement for his behavior.
