2. Remove Yourself
You may think that you’re giving your child a time-out from their favorite toy or another activity, but you are really giving them physical separation from YOU. Yes, you are taking away their interaction with outside stimuli, but our children really desire our attention. When you choose not to give it to them, they will get the message that you are serious. If your child is old enough, put them in their room. If you can’t leave them unattended you can stay in the room, but don’t acknowledge them. The important part is that you are not interacting with them to let them feel the full weight of their actions.
