Time out?

A friend was over yesterday and my ds is very clingy, especially when there are new people in the house that he's not used to. He's 14 months and she said when her ds was that age she'd put him in time out. That's the first I've ever heard a 14 month old being in time out. Thoughts??

    Yeah. My ds was kind of whining if I wasn't holding him, so she said to put him in time out because that's what she did with her ds

    Being whinny/clingy is NOT a reason for a time out. Yea if he kept constantly hitting or throwing toys after repeatedly talking to them about why its not nice, then yes removing them for a period of tine sure. 1 min per year is what i do.

    I mean at 14 months.. Is time out even an option? I've never ever thought about time out for him ever.

    At 14 months? He can barely sit still on our lap. I've just never thought about time out for him

    There should be discipline if he is doing something wrong like hitting etc. You just have to choose what works for you

    Yeah, we haven't reached that yet thank god. He's still a sweet baby.. Not too toddler like yet :) I just never thought of doing time out.. I was in aw when she said it. I must have looked at her with a weird face because she asked me if I was ok. Lol

    I said remove him from the situation. take him to another room away from the toys hes throwing or person he is hitting for an amount of time after u have told him that is not nice behavior. I dont expect a 14 month old to stand in a corner or sit in a chair. But they can still be in a "time out" by simply being put in another room for a length of time. At 14 months i would say 1 minute, 24 months 2 minutes and so on
