Time Out vs Time In Tool


All carers are tasked with guiding children, which includes responding to misbehaviour. How this is done though, can impact a child’s ongoing wellbeing and understanding of the world. Time out is a common method used by adults to respond to a misbehaving child. But, for children who struggle to calm down, time out can be detrimental to their wellbeing, and carers will usually find time out quickly stops being effective. 


The concept of time in is rooted in more recent approaches to child discipline, emphasizing empathy and emotional connection. It recognizes the importance of addressing the underlying causes of behavior rather than just the behavior itself. By engaging in open communication and problem-solving, children may better understand the consequences of their actions and develop more positive behavior patterns. It fosters a sense of connection and trust between the child and caregiver.


This resource helps parents and caregivers to understand and implement the 'time in' approach. Perfect for parents, therapists, social workers, counselors, and child psychologists.
