"Using Time-Out: What Would You Do?" Activity Scenario 1

Timeout

You send your child to time-out for hitting her sister. She keeps getting up and comes back with a toy.

What Would You Do?

Staying calm can be hard. When you yell, you teach your child yelling is how to solve a problem. Try a different choice.

If you give up, you may teach her she can get out of time-out if she makes it difficult for you. Try a different choice.

This is a good choice! Make sure you follow through with taking away the privilege if she doesn’t stay in time-out.
