My little girl is 19 month old and we have one spot in the house that we use for time outs, its beside the fishtank and when she gets in time out she sit there no matter what room we are in we go to that spot, at first i had to keep sitting her back down and tell her over and over that we dont hit mommy or what ever she did and after her sitting ther for a few sec i get down on the floor tell her to come her and tell her that what she did was not nice and that i lover her and do hugs and kissies. Now we have been doing that since she was 15 months and now she will sit her whole min and not get up till i come and sit by her, but you cant stop telling her why she is there. Hope this helps.
