Maybe its safer to put them outside then in a room where they could pull furniture on themselves? If thats how the parents choose to discipline their children then its no different to putting them into their bedrooms.

Not time out but when I am about to lose it, I send my lot (all of them) to go play outside on the patio. That way it gives me time to calm down before I deal with what ever/whoever need dealing with IYKIM.

Do you think this is acceptable?
It doesn't sit well with me, it just seems a bit rough. Also how can they use it consistently? What do they do if it's freezing cold, stinking hot or raining?

I don't know, at first I thought "No way! How wrong!" but then I thought about it for a minute.
We send DS to his bedroom for time out if he's being naughty. We don't shut his door, but as it's around a corner he can't see us and we can't see him. If he were to be doing something dangerous like jumping on his bed in a rage next to his wooden toy box, or throwing things, we wouldn't see what he was doing. We'd hear it but we probably wouldn't realise that he was in danger.
If he was standing outside at the glass window, could see us and we could see him then I guess I wouldn't think it so bad as long as he was only crying in a hissy fit rather than distress and ONLY if the weather was ok!
If being shut on the other side of a glass door made him scared or distressed (rather than just cranky) then no, I probably wouldn't do it.
