I'm on my phone so I didn't read responses. But Walter recently started acting wild and so I started time outs, and it backfired. It felt contradictory to how I had been positively parenting him. And it made him feel bad about himself. So I started researching some and found this book series called Positive Discipline.
They have a message board too, just google. The authors name is Nelson. She has a great book for preschoolers. She also has a booked called Positive Time Out. Positive Time Out
It's good stuff. And it's working way better than time outs, and falls in line with what we've been doing. Alfie Kohn also has a good book called Unconditional Parenting that might be worth looking at.
