Update on Time-Outs

After sitting in his high chair by himself for 10 or 15 minutes once, Gavin is now quite happy to say "I'm sorry Mama" after his time-outs. Time-outs seem to be quite an effective discipline method at the moment. He absolutely hates them and cries very loudly for the entire minute or minute-and-a-half he has to sit in the corner (I'm pretty sure he hates them more than spankings.) And, a verbalized possibility of a time-out almost always keeps him from disobeying.
