Most of the time when I put Eva in time out she says sorry after about 15 seconds and then I have her come and give me a hug and a kiss and I tell her that I love her. I also have her repeat to me why she had to go in time out and reiterate that whatever it was that she did is not acceptable.

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.
