If you used time outs with a toddler, how did you make it work (as far as keeping them in time out)?
I started when my daughter was 2. We had a little time out mat in the living room. The first few times I put her on the mat she wouldn't stay but you always have to get them back to the time-out spot so they understand you're serious about it. A few times and she got it. When I said time out she would go to her mat, sit down and cry. Two minutes later I would go to her, explain why she had to sit on the time out mat and ask her to apologize.
Then a hug, kiss and punishment is over !! :)
