Anyway, I'd like to share with you my son's video when he was on his time-out. He was put on time-out because he keeps getting into things that he's not supposed to and after a warning and telling him the consequences such as he might hurt himself, he still continued to do it. So, he sat on his bed for 3 minutes. Actually, it wasn't that bad cos he's facing the TV that has his favorite show, only that he is not allowed to get down and play with his toys or anything.
He didn't like it but he knew that he's gonna get it when he doesn't behave. It was not a way of punishment but to straighten him up whenever he does the things that he is not supposed to and might hurt him or anyone else.
