I use the term "timeout" loosely here. My 2 year old will has started having tantrums and screaming when he doesn't get his way, so I put him in his bed until he's done. Do you think I should give him his paci while in there (as he's screaming for it) or let him cry his tantrum out? Does it kind of defeat the purpose? I have given it to him because he will calm down if I do, which is my goal. And it isn't really a time out - more like a cooling-off place - for him AND me!
