Re: Punishments Outside of the Home
We do time-out then and there. At the mall- family lounge area if they have one, on the bench at the play area, where ever. We usually find a dressing room and that is where we do it. I have only had to do it once at the mall and once at Target. Once dd realized that I could institute a time out in public me asking her if she needed to go to time out became a valid warning. I never leave places. I live too far away to come back late because of a tantrum- I have gone to the car for a time out at the grocery store (this was before I lost my embarrassment over sitting dd down in public. Last week I sat ds down beside an empty shelf at the checkout aisle because he was throwing a massive fit. That was his very first public time out- it took him about 2 seconds to stop.
