Hi my son is 3 and he's been having bevahior problems for quite some time now. He has been to numerous drs. The latest dr. told us to put him in his room for timeout and lock the door if he attempts to open it. Is locking a child in his room considered abusive? I know its to isolate him from the rest of us until he calms down but I dont know if its right.
My 3 year old son too is also very hard work and his behavior is so bad sometimes i feel like giving up completely. but i would never lock him in his room. put him in his room for time out, every time he gets out of his room put him back in, after 3 times of doing this tell him you will lock him in there if he doesn't stay put in his room. then put him back in there and hold the door. that way he thinks you have done what you said you would do. but you haven't locked him in there.
No locking of doors...time outs are okay and work for a lot of folks be consistant..find out why your child is behaving like this what is triggering the behavior , what is he upset about, what happens between you prior to the tantrums ?
