Time out is a dignified and effective method of discipline, endorsed by the American Academy of Pediatrics and the American Psychological Association. This book, written by parenting experts, explains the time out process and provides step-by-step instructions for its proper and effective use. Please Explain Time Out To Me is two books in one: an engaging story with colorful illustrations and a parent section which describes the time out process in detail, as well as the advantages and pitfalls of other methods of discipline.

Children will: 

  • Enjoy the story 
  • Understand how time out works
  • Empathize with the characters in the book
  • Be treated respectfully when given a consequence
  • Experience the benefits of time out as a mechanism of behavior change

Parents and caregivers will: 

  • Develop a plan for supplying responses to their child's unacceptable behavior
  • Understand the rationale behind time out as a management technique
  • Learn how to use time out effectively
  • Better handle behavioral issues wherever they occur
  • Learn that physical forms of punishment do not work
