Do you do time outs? yes

How long are the time outs? I do how old they are is the time they spend. Dillan is 4 so 4 min, Chase 21 months so 1.5 min ect.

Where does the time out take place? in the living room beside one of our couches.

AYlie's never needed one, she's always just listened to what I say.
Layla needs them occasionally, though a lot less lately. Usually she sits on the stairs by herself for 2 minutes, then I come talk to her about why she's been in time out and make her apologize.

Do you do time outs? With Alyssa yes, not with Rylan yet.
How long are the time outs? Alyssa's are 3 minutes (since she's almost 3). Then we talk about what she did, and she gives hugs and kisses and apologizes.
Where does the time out take place? At first it was just in the "bad chair" but that wasn't working, so now she goes to her room.[/

With Taylor I do. She sits in her room until she stops crying/throwing a tantrum which is usually 2-5 mins and then we talk about things, she gives me a huge hug, I tell her I love her, and she never repeats the behavior

Is baby Aubrey Alana or Jacob Robert?!
