Well I don't use time out for her feelings (ie a tantrum), I use it to reinforce that drawing on the white book case with red crayon is not cool. If she hits me she may go to time out but generally it is for property related offences.

When the 'experts' finally decide how we should be raising our children, I hope they get back to each of us personally. So sick of the neverending list of things we should or shouldn't be doing. It's impossible to keep up with. Who is raising their child perfectly anyway? I'm just trying to do my best and stay sane at the same time.

Re: New "research" shows Time Outs can be harmful to children?
I wonder who's paying for this research.

New "research" shows Time Outs can be harmful to children?
Wow. I think I should start looking at the different techniques now before I need them! Maybe I'll be able to find something that will suit my DD's personality...
I've never really been keen on time outs - a close friend has been using it since her DD was around 20ish months, puts her in a naughty spot facing the wall and she sits there screaming hysterically - its very upsetting for me to watch. She does calm down by the end of her time out, but I can't say that it's changed her behaviour much, she's still a bit of a bully and very demanding.. Maybe it's the style of time out? I don't know. But I think I'll read up on the other techniques and see if anything suits us..

Us walking away does help, but you're right in that you risk him damaging something in your absence.
I am thinking of trying a sticker chart to encourage positive behaviour.
I have found his behaviour is at its worst when he is bored or feels like he is not getting enough attention, so I probably need to provide more stimulation for him.
