Parenting Tips – How to Give Time-Outs | Parents


Learn how to give time-outs as a punishment for children with Parents Magazine! Time-outs are time away from you. Kids crave attention from their parents, so losing it is a big deal. Reserve time-outs for behavior that could endanger your child or someone else. Time-outs can happen anywhere that's away from you. Just make sure it's someplace safe. Put your child in time-out for one minute for each year of your child's age, but don't give your child a time-out for having a temper tantrum. Just ignore them. If you're in a public place, don't wait to do a time-out. Be creative with your discipline techniques by stepping outside or using the restroom. Utilize these time-out parenting tips when disciplining children!
