agreed. Timeout just teaches kids to do the crime, do the time, then go out and play. A major contribution to recidivism

If any of us here pulled half the crap the kids today pull on their parents... need I say what our punishment would be? Back then it was called, "straightening out." Today it's called "child abuse." Rubbish, I say.
Though I do kinda wish we had "time outs" as a kid, but back then parents knew exactly waht we would be doing as we just sit and think bout what we did...we would plan how not to get caught next time

Wow panic. I hope I don't get to that stage in my relationship for at least a few more years.
