“What is ‘Time-Out’?”

Text Box:

The term “Time-Out” is an abbreviation that originates from the longer phrase “Time-Out from opportunities for positive reinforcement.”  It may be defined as “a corrective measure or punishment for young children in which they are separated from others for a brief period” (The American Heritage® Dictionary of the English Language, Fourth Edition, Published by Houghton Mifflin Company.).
