Please read all of this...my son who is 3 has been acting really well he listens talks to me when he is upset...but when he does do something wrong and I tell him NO sternly and make him sit in the corner he cries and cries...i will make him sit there until he stops crying and sits there respectively but my question is anyone else have this problem? and what do you do to change it? Is it okay to skip time outs?If the problem is resolved better by talking it out and they dont do it again? Also anything besides time outs any of you have tried...? I have taken away toys and taken away cartoons...? Desperate I do not want my son acting this way towards a teacher ect..
I think u should say no sternly. Remind him what he did wrong and give him 3 minutes. Let him cry. Remind him during with a calm voice that you love him but what he did was wrong and he has to stay there.
Pull him out after 3 minutes even if still crying. Hug him, remind him why he was punished and move on.
Rinse and repeat until they're 21
