Taking A Break Formally known as Time Out
Time Out works if you follow a simple formula. Many parents do not believe it works because they make fatal errors in following the formula. Teaching a child to Take a Break, when they have done something unacceptable is the most powerful, non violent, method for modifying a child’s unwanted behaviors. And most importantly, if you learn to help your child Take a Break correctly, it takes your anger out of the situation. It is important that your child learn that they did something wrong and they must change. It is destructive for the child to feel like you are angry and don’t love them anymore.
