Time Out Chair

Updated on December 11, 2014

Time Out Chair

A period of time in a quiet 'time out' spot/step/mat for a toddler or young child who has misbehaved. Really useful from aged 3 years and up to approx 6 or 7 years old. After this age, most children can be sent somewhere to be quiet without needing a visual or physical reminder. The length of time-out is usually equivalent to their age e.g. 3 minutes for a 3 year old and so on. Some parents have huge success with sitting their child on the bottom step of a set of stairs. Others will need to use a mat or rug, bench or stool - visual timers can be a really useful tool and not just for children with autism.

Some kids need and benefit from a visual or physical place to sit for time out.

This lens features a variety of the options available:

* wooden benches

* rocking chairs

* mats and rugs

* pads with lights and timers.

Choose what you think will work best for your children, family and home.

Time Out Pad

Time Out Pad - Blue

The Time Out Pad is a pressure sensitive pad with a built in timer that helps parents monitor time outs. This simply works by adjusting the timer for one to five minutes and by pressing the start button. Its countdown will start when the child sits on the Time Out Pad and if the child stands up before the countdown has ended, an alarm sounds until they sit back down. This features red, yellow, and green lights that provide a visual countdown signaling the last 30 seconds of the time out. The Time Out Pad comes with a positive parenting guide including 5 steps to successful time outs.

It requires two AA batteries which are not included.

The Time Out Pad helps parents make the most of the time out technique.

To help children learn when their behavior is not acceptable, many parents use the 'time-out' technique, sitting the child quietly for a few minutes to calm down.

Time-outs are a great way for the parents to stay calm too!
