How long should a punishment be for a pre schooler?

Ok I caught my defiant 4 yr old getting into the bathroom cabinet and got out my perfume, and my liquid make up, and lotion and was everywhere in her room. I sent her to her room and no TV. How long should she be in there for? Is this an appropriate discipline for her? She was told already to leave mommy's stuff alone. Is there anything else I should have done?

  • I would have spanked her butt, which would have taken 3 minutes max.
