5. Explain Time-Out

Parents who are critical of time-outs often have failed attempts at using it as a successful form of modifying their children’s behavior. In some cases, it’s because the child doesn’t understand what’s going on. No matter the age of your child, you can explain what a time-out is and why it’s happening. Use simple statements such as “Mommy doesn’t want you to get hurt so please get off the counter. If you don’t, you will get a time-out.” Do not ask your child if they want a time-out (majorly guilty of this one!) but simply inform them that one is imminent if they do not listen. If you’re discovering that there is no connection being made between the warning and the behavior, then perhaps your child isn’t old enough to fully embrace time-out as a method of discipline. Good luck mamas!
