I just recently joined a playgroup, my daughter is 2 1/2. Well she started acting up at one of the play meets, so I put her time out, or what I call the "naughty spot" (really it's anywhere where I plop her down and she has to stay there) for 2 minutes. I told her why she was going in there, because she threw a fit. When her time was up, I again told her why she was in her "naughty spot" asked to apologize, told her I loved her and sent her back to play. She behaved to whole rest of the time. Personally I think she understands the naughty spot and tries her best to stay out of it. Even just the threatening of the naughty spot will stop he in her tracks in most cases. Here's the thing though, I felt like some of the other Moms thought it was strange that I was disciplining a 2 year old. One Mom said, "Well, we tried it once. We sent him to his room for 15 minutes but he trashed his room and it didn't work". She's telling me this and I'm thinking, well sure they are going to throw a fit, but if you are consistent, they will learn the quickest way to get out of time out is to calm down and get it over with. So here's my question, is two years old too young to be getting disciplined?? I would like to hear other parents opinions.
