2. Sit by Them if Necessary

When you are dealing with a small child, such as one under the age of three or four, it may be necessary to sit beside them during their time out. The purpose of that is to make sure they remain where you placed them. When you start using time-outs with children, you have to teach them what that means. Sitting by them is part of that. This way, when they start to get up you can remind them that they are in time-out and have to sit where you instructed them to.
