We have given up Timeout as a discipline tool and have been implementing Time-in and just general talking and positive role modeling instead. We were only using time-out for hitting (us or the dogs) anyway and She's outgrown that anyway.

Anyone else????
What Are you doing instead of Timeout????

I prefer to redirect, show her what she can do, and take away things before they become an issue. She has sat in timeout a couple of times more recently but that is because I am hormonal and loose the cool, patient temper I normally have with her. It is sooooo not her fault and I am trying to find an answer to that.

As Ben is only 8 months old, this is subject to change, but I planned on using time-in for most situations and using time-out as sparingly as possible in order to keep its impact. I think there will inevitably be some trial and error on my part though, and in the end I will have to see what works and what doesn't.

I picked up Discipline without distress by Judy Arnall. It talked about the disadvantags of time outs that spoke volumes to me. So far at 21 months we have not used time outs and I hope we won't have to.

Time-ins don't work for my children. Time outs do. I think it depends on the family and the child.
