Yes, after a request, a warning, and a 1-2-3 count.. if still not cooperating, he gets a time out in a chair in his bedroom for 3 mins. He is three and a half and we started these at 2. He hates them and they seem to work when used with warnings and discussion afterwards. We rarely get timeouts twice a day for the same thing, but my son is just very defiant, independent, and stubborn.
You are worth having a healthy body!
This is a lifestyle change to be healthy, not a diet and not a sprint to get there.. one day at a time, one pound at a time.. as long as it takes, starting again as often as possible.
i use time out i started using them when my oldest was one now my youngest is two and he gets them :) they work well for my children we also use two faces a happy face and a sad face if the kids are having a hard time we use a sad face until they can start behaving. we do the face three times a day morning noon and night morning if they are on the happy face at cdheck time they get to choose from the pirates treasure
I use time outs, I started when my daughter was close to 2, she is now going to be 3 in October. Time outs somewhat work but not a hole lot, I havent found anything htat really works with her she is so stubborn

we never used timeouts..and with how my dd is, i really don't think they would work with her anyway. it seems to be better for her to explain to her what she did and why she's in trouble and then implement whatever punishment we told her she would get if she didn't listen to us..whether it be no cartoons for however long, no toy if she was told she could get one, no sucker after supper, etc..works pretty well for us cause she'll come to me later and tell me what she did and that it was wrong, that we were upset with her and that she's sorry.
