Timeout question PIOG

 I have a two year old. And he screams. He doesn't talk very well yet, and he gets really frustrated and that is how he shows his frustration. We used to put him in his room until he calmed down and then we would sit and talk with him about why we put him in there. Well now he throws himself against the door (sits with his back to the door and throws himself back, beats his fists, lays down and throws his feet against the door). I'm afraid he is going to hurt himself. So now I am graduating to timeout. Here's my question. When you did timeout with your kids in the beginning did you have to kind of hold them there to keep them from wandering? Or what? I feel bad holding him there, and I am not sure if what I am doing is right or even effective. I appreciate any other advice also. Thanks in advance!

You are doing fine. My oldest I had to hold and yes I felt horrible. My youngest will be 2 in a few weeks and I have never had to hold him.
