the time out doesnt even begin until he is quiet, when he speaks it starts over, when having a battle of wills is it absolutely acceptable for him to be there for .... maybe hours depending on how old and how defiant, he desides how long it last by desiding when to stop acting up. the one thing, dont let him beat you! choose your battles and stick to your guns! good luck!
