If you wait until after the time out (and your 1 min per year is perfect), then he will be better able to understand why he’s in time out, because the emotions will have had time to calm down. I’m a mother of 3 grown kids and have one 17 month old grand daughter who has just started playing “what’s in your hand? means run away as fast as you can”, lol.

For me it’s think, type/write, say and do. There are things I think that I would never write, things I write that I would never say etc. I have had some awful thoughts about my kids over the years, most of them are immediately regretted but they have still popped into my head. I have a select group of friends that I feel like I can be totally honest with and we often discuss our children’s behaviour. Kids can be bitchy, rude, mean (both boys and girls) and I don’t see a problem describing the BEHAVIOUR as such but I would never, ever call my daughter or son a bitch. I think the distinction between the two is clear.

I dragged my screaming just-3 out from under the table by her leg tonight and held her so tight while she let the torment of her confiscated toy wash away in the flood of her tears. She was too tired to cope after a full day of trying to be in charge. Sometimes it all gets too much and they just need to be held oh-so-tightly and loved.

This claim, which was met with disbelief, is now proving true for all of my friends with 3year olds. Luckily I have another year and a half before the 3′s hit. Fore warned is forearmed
