I've had a 3 year old in time out for 15 minutes now

Posted by Anonymous   + Show Post

Because she won't quit back talking, telling me no, and she won't stay in time out. I told her her 3 minutes starts when she sits there nicely. Day 1 with this kid and she's naughty as all get out. I'm sitting here beside her, ignoring her, so that she'll stay put.

 Lol. Have fun. Don't you hate these kind of days? My 5 year old has been in and out of timeout all morning. I told her 1 more time, and she's just going to her room for the afternoon.

Ugh. Yes. And I don't feel good so it's even worse. I knew she could be stubborn but I didn't know she was this bad!

3 yr olds say no, Grady says it all the time and it doesn't bother me i don't jump all over him because i don't want him to be the image i have for him in my own head.

My kids have sat in a time out for over an hour before. They know it doesn't start until they're calm and quiet. 

Yeah, well it looks like that might be how this goes.

It works for lots of kids. Hopefully it may help yours. 


Basically, you have a 3 strikes rule. 

You have a chart with 3 pieces of velcro. you have a 1, 2, and 3, piece for the velcro. Each strike, the child removes a number. When the child removes the 3, it is time out time. 

Do not speak to child while in time out, and once they get out of time out, let it go. Do not talk to them about it

Don't give in! Lol. It takes a few times of doing that and they learn to just give up after a few minutes. Mine rarely struggle with it anymore, they know they get against the time out wall, forehead on the wall and hands at their sides.

You're in for a rude awakening if you let your 3 year old child get away with telling you no and being belligerent when you say something to them or tell them to do something.
