Well, time-out isn't a punishment. It's an opportunity for your child to learn how to cope with frustration and modify his behavior. While your child is in a time-out, he's on his own, so try to let him sit in solitude for a few moments. Any attention from you – positive or negative – only reinforces unwanted behavior.(baby-center). And it is most recommended to be used once your baby hits 2.
So we sent him to the stairs for 5 mins to stop crying and think about what he had done.
He stopped crying the first 2mins, and begged to climb down the next 2 minutes. We 'released' him after exactly 5mins which worked wonders.
By last he apologized to Amsyar and said this " kesian amsyar..Allah saaayang amsyar.Allah marah pukul adik"
Well at least he managed to thinked about it for 5mins ;)
Alhmdulillah.this worked wonders.well for now. :)
There are also some nice info on timeouts here and some techniques from dr sears here :)
Happy parenting mommies.
