Time out chair ?


This is my one of my favorite chairs. I have 2 of those. They are very versatile and can go anywhere in my house.
This one is my Time out chair. I don't believe in spanking but in time out and privileges being taken away. It is a lot of work...I remember one day giving 20 time out to my 3 year old...in one day.WOW so much trouble...LOL
I love it and would not do it an other way. 
This is how it works...I tell my child why he gets a time out...He gets one minute per age...7 minutes for a 7 year old. If he has the tendency to not stay there, i stay by him.....Then i tell him again why he had a time out at the end and ask him to say sorry.....Got this from a Super Nanny show .LOL.

Love the chair and have considered buying one very similar. Hubby would hate it but I LOVE animal print on a chair in any room of the house.

wish someone would give me time-out in that chair! What a lovely place to relax. LOL! My grandson (20 months) puts himself in timeout. I haven't figured out if that's a good thing or bag thing.

My mom did it with me before it was the way to go...that looks like a great time out chair..I think I'd take a nap in it! :D

I think I'd get in trouble just to get to sit in that gorgeous chair!!
I agree with you about spanking! I don't think it teaches anything other than 'If something makes you angry, hit it!'

It must be fun being in time out in your house, hah.
My daughter and son in law use the same technique except when the time is up they go sit next to their daughter and ask her why she is in time out. I love watching them do it.

Laura Lynn said...

I always tell my kids that one day they will beg someone to send them to their room or to time out- to enjoy taking a break now because they won't get one when they are a parent. Haha.
Love your bedroom photos!
I'm following!
Thanks,
Laura
