Is Time Out BAD for your Child?


New brain studies show that it may be.  Here is a link to an article about the study.  I used to give my children time-outs, but I did notice some of the things it said in this article, so I decided linking priveliges to correct behavior works much better.  (i.e.  Tommy, you can play with this toy after you put the silverware away....or I'm going to put this toy up, until you can agree how best to share it.)  Also, after asking them to obey, getting up and physically helping them to obey with a patient tone of voice also works.  I really liked the suggestions in the article.  What did you think?
