 i didnt start time outs till my son was around 15months old..i personally dont believe they are able to know right from wrong till they are atleast a yr old and even then my son didnt respond to time outs till he was 2, he's now 2.5 and he still has a hard time with time outs.

HI! im a 20 yr old disposable diapering, CIO attempting, vaxing (but no flu shot), circ'ing, BFing AND FFing, vaginal and c-section birthing, co-sleeping, SAHM to two BOYS. i have been fairly happily married since i was 17 to my high school sweetheart who i met when i was 15. yes i am a "teen mom" but i also graduated high school early. so dont tell me im too young because i will tell you your too old!
SORRY FOR ANY TYPOS, IM NAK ALOT!

At this point, Connor wouldn't understand. I don't think I'll start time out until he can understand what 'time out" means. Somewhere between 1 1/2 and 2 probably. I like to use redirection and postive reinforcement. It always worked well in my daycare classrooms so hopefully he responds well to it too :)
