Re: What age did you start time outs?

If I remember correctly they started when the biting started, 15 months. She didn't understand but she was biting so hard (drawing blood) that it needed to be done (nothing else worked). I'd say she actually understood at 18 months what time out actually meant. I say distraction works best until about 2 years old or so unless you have a determined child as I do.
