Foster Parent College: Positive Parenting 3: Time Out, Privilege Removal, and Extra Chores

Positive Parenting 3 introduces three techniques to use in more challenging situations. Time-outs offer children a break from the situation so they can calm down and regroup. Removing Privileges can be more effective with older children, who will understand the connection between their behavior and what they lost. Assigning Extra Chores teaches that an unpleasant task is the reward for negative behavior.
