What can I do...

when my two year old ds seems to like timeout? He runs and I ask him what will happen if he runs more. He says "timeout" and runs away from me. I sit him in timeout and he usually cries for a minute and I let him up after two minutes. Usually no longer than 3 minutes later...he is running again!

  • yes, you might have to do it 5 or 10 times in a row. And you need to use your serious voice, don't act like it's funny or that you are tired.

    Good luck!!!
