"Using Time-Out: What Would You Do?" Activity Scenario 3

Timeout

You have sent your child to time-out, but she is having fun playing with toys in the time-out chair and singing songs.

What Would You Do?

If you take her out of time-out, she learns playing gets your attention and makes time-out end early. Try a different choice.

Good idea. Make sure you don’t look at or talk to her. You could also try standing nearby to make sure she stays where you put her.

Although you are keeping her from getting out of the chair, she is getting your attention. Try a different choice.
