Marisa is going thru the horrid, terrible, frustrating 2's. She does ther classic temper tantums, plus a little flair for the drama. Or she gets ahold of something that she can't have, and when we go to get it from her, she throws it. She broke a dolphin figurine my mom gave me before she died. Have ni idea how she got it. It was in my room and we have a gate in the door way. I was soooooo upset, that I had to have a time out, so my DH took over. What kind of place does one need for a time out? I don't think her room is a good place because of her toys being in there. Out house is quite small, and very littler area to have a "time out" Do they need to be by themselves? Do we need to have her with in sight? And I'm sure ya'll know, we put her in a time out chair and of course she doesn't stay there. My sister told me once that we should tell her she is "naughty girl" instead of a "bad girl". Is there a reason for this? There are days she far surpasses being a "naughty girl"!!! When we put her in the chair, is she supposed to stay there intil she settlers down? Then count 2 mintues? Help!!!

We've done everything and are still trying everything but mine are about to turn 3 & 4. For our time outs we put them beside the front door. I live in an apt so I'm able to see them from the kitchen. Sometimes if I'm in the living room then they stand beside the hallway's closet door. Anywhere that I can keep an eye on them not matter what I'm doing. IMO the bedroom has too many distractions with toys and what not. They rarely sit in a timeout chair because the chair became a "toy" and they would just spin around in it or face backwards. So now they have to stand and face the wall with their hands to their sides. My understanding of the time was time was to start when they hit timeout but IDK. My timer starts when they stop performing and stand like they are suppose to without playing. But to each his own. Just make sure whatever you do you're consistent. I wish you luck..
