Self-imposed time out
We hardly every have to use time out at our house. I think we have honestly used it twice and ever since, I just give Carter the option to do as mommy or daddy has asked or sit in time out. The usual response is to do what was asked.
Today was a bit different. We played all morning and it was time to leave the house so, I asked Carter to come with me to get a new diaper and get dressed so that we could leave. This request was followed by about 10 seconds of a hissy-fit. I told him that he could get a new diaper or sit in time out.
He calmly walked over to his bench and sat down.
