4. Set a Timer

It is a good idea to set a time when you are giving your child time-out. There are a couple of reasons for this. One, it lets your child know their time is limited in time-out so they don’t feel hopeless and spend their time in time-out wondering how long they will be sitting there instead of what they should be thinking about. Secondly, it makes sure that you don’t forget you have placed them in time-out and yes, that can happen as most seasoned parents will attest to. A good rule to follow is one minute per year of age.
