So today Hannah proved to us that she understood what Time Out means. For weeks now we have been using time out, possibly even months. It seemed kind of in vain and has been more than a little frustrating. Today however, she proved that it was working. Jeff and I have been very consistent with the sequence we use with time out. We have a particular corner, behavior, and after effect.
Today she goes over to the wall socket that has the vaccuum plugged into it. She goes to touch it and then say "no no, time out" She then proceeds to put herself in the time out corner and sit there. Then she got up, said "sorry mommy" and walked over and gave me a kiss. Now you tell me she doesn't understand time out!
