  • It depends on how you decide to give the timeout. At 15 months they are smarter than we think, but not good at sitting on a time out. The playpen is a good idea, I you might even use the high chair or booster chair to put them in securly in one spot.

  • I don't think so, If after timeout you let him now what he did and why he got it and then ask do you now why?

  • My son's the same age and I know he wouldn't sit for any length of time in a "time out". Some people use the empty play pen for their time outs though. Maybe it will work, I'm not too sure though.

  • My daughter is also 15 months. i have a specific corner in the liveing room that she sits in for 1 minutes (because she is 1) when she is naughty. She gets the point pretty well. As soon as I walk over to get her she hops up and gives me a hug. It has worked pretty well for me!
