I agree with this. This is why we use Isaac's crib and only when we have to (basically when I'm at the end of my rope and she won't stay in her time out space).

Sometimes if Eva is just being difficult, before she gets to the point of getting a time out for bad behavior, I will ask her if she needs to take a break and calm down/readjust her behavior. This gives her the chance to avoid a time-out by just taking a break in her room.


I didn't even read your response until now! Sorry! I hope you dont think I was attacking you or anything. We have put Bry in our room for timeout, I was just saying we never use her room as her timeout space because we want it to be her happy place
