It's legal. Olivia is old enough for time out and that form of discipline was put to use yesterday. I put her in time out and she screamed at me. And I calmly explained to her that her time out didn't start until she quit screaming (Did she really understand that?) I think so. She stopped screaming and sat quietly. She peeked around every couple of seconds to see what everyone else was doing, but she completed her two minutes and then happily rejoined society.
She looked adorable sitting there with her face against the wall. Lol. I had to get a couple of pictures. And now looking at them, she looks pitiful. Hush Nanna!
