When my daughter turned two, my husband and I found ourselves sending our daughter to "time out" when she didn't follow the rules or listen. Why? Well, because that's what we thought would work. Most parents I knew did it, and I didn't really have any other options. It worked the first few times, and we felt darn proud! But then- it stopped. Not the time out, the listening. She started making a game of it, putting herself in time out -- frustrating the heck out of my husband and I. We were stumped. It wasn't working.
