I have a son who spends a good part of his day sitting in time-out for one thing or another. It doesn't seem to be teaching him anything. If anything, it's teaching him he can say whatever he pleases and all that will happen is he will be told to sit for 7 minutes. I'm consistent (hence why he has a lot of time-outs). Why isn't this working for me? I'm about to go crazy!

even at 5 they have favorite toys if time our isn't working start making him stand with nose in the corner most kids hate doing this it may be more effective. since they cant look around and entertain them selves like they can just sitting in time out... if that doesn't work then go into his room and ask him what are his favorite toys... when he's not in trouble and then start by taking 1-5 of his fav. toys away for a day every time he gets in trouble eventually he'll stop or have nothing else to play with ... and after the 24 hours don't just give him the toys back make him do things to earn each one back... if he has to earn the privilege of playing with his toys then he'll stop.
