Time Outs: Friend or Foe?

Time Outs: Friend or Foe?

Using Timeouts is a hot and touchy topic!  Most parents tell me it is not effective and is used in a heated moment when they don't know what else to do.  That is why I want to share with you new and better ways to use timeouts in your parenting.  I was interviewed a while back for a piece in ParentMap Magazine on this topic and also appeared on Fox News in Seattle to answer questions about when, why and how we use timeouts in our parenting. I wanted to make sure I got all of your questions answered about timeouts so that you too can use this intervention more effectively and respectfully.
