I use timeout for my 2 1/2 year old. We started when she was 1. She gets a count out first if that doesn't stop the behavior we go to the timeout. So far it works well.

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.

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.
