Dr. Stratyner discusses the Psychology of ‘Time-Outs’ in Young Children

NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) – Are time-outs worth the time?

A recent parenting blog about completely eliminating punishment for children has a lot of folks debating what works and what doesn’t.

The blog says even putting your kids in time-out is ineffective and harmful.

As CBS 2′s Emily Smith reported, the time-out seems to be the go-to strategy for disciplining children.

But psychologist Dr. Harris Stratyner said it isn’t effective at all.

“They may temporarily resolve a situation but they don’t work. And actually, they cause a lot of damage,” he told Smith.
