Confession

okay here it is...Sometimes...I put my child in timeout because really...I'm the one who needs a time out. I can get a little "Hot" when G doesn't listen to me...and in an effort not to lose my cool I just put him in his crib for a few minutes...or however long it takes for me to calm down.

It might not be fair...but I think its better than me screaming at him all the while getting more frustrated because he doesn't understand me...or doesn't care to.

...thankfully he generally likes his crib so by the time I've cooled down...he's having a good time jumping around reading books in his crib and we can start over again...no harm done.

  1. Yeah, for us too it's definitely a mutually needed thing. I don't understand the people who object to using time outs with kids.
