Young Children's Perceptions of Time Out.
Readdick, Christine A.; Chapman, Paula L.
Journal of Research in Childhood Education, v15 n1 p81-87 Fall-Win 2000
Assessed preschoolers' perceptions of and attitudes toward time out discipline. Found that children were isolated for noncompliance more often than for aggression. Children expressed largely negative self-attributions, such as feeling alone, disliked by the teacher, and ignored by peers, indicating perception of punishment. As they were usually unable to say why punishment occurred, effectiveness of this method is doubtful. (JPB)
