When Zach is in trouble for hitting or screaming or whatnot, he goes to his “spot”, which is basically time-out, we just started calling it his spot as he sits on a hot pink mat. And usually screams. I got the mat for our laundry room to match the hot pink stencils on the wall (I will give you a minute for that to sink in), but somehow it worked its way out of the laundry room and into the breakfast room.
Where Norman likes to sleep on it. When Zach sees him he always exclaims “Norman is on my spot! Did Norman hit you Mommy?” then to Norman “We will set the timer and come back to get you.”
Poor Norman, just resting and Zach has him in time-out.
