time out

Now that Liam is a little bit older and more daring, we have been using time outs with him. We try to use all the techniques that Jo Frost has taught us...however I am not sure she has taught me what to do when...

Liam has a small slide in the back yard that he loves to slide on. Today he decided that he was going to stand on the top of the slide and dance. Cute? sure.Safe? Not so much. So he gets his choices, make a good choice (sit down) or time out. I start to count- if I get to 3 and he still has not made a good choice, then it is time out.

Me: 1
Liam: tuuuuuuuu, smiles & laughs

Time out did not work so well that time around!
