I decided to try time outs with my 18 month old. only for dangerous things like climbing in kitchen chairs and on the table. the only time out place I could think of was her crib that she still uses. it backfired big time. now she is fighting bedtime which she hasn't done in about a month. she's fine and sleepy until I lay her down then all hell breaks loose.
any ideas? she doesn't sit still ever so I can't just make her sit down for the minute and a half without physically holding het down. we don't have space to put up a pack n play (always known as baby jail in our house) since we moved. it works and she's stopped most of her dangerous acts in less than three days. it is just bedtime that os a pain now. we used the ferber method at 13 months so shes were no strangers to crying at bedtime but she was doing wonderfully before timeouts in her crib.

Laws Concerning Food and Drink;
Lamentations of the Father
by Ian Frazier
The Living Room
Of the beasts of the field, and of the fishes of the sea, and of all foods that are acceptable in my sight you may eat, but not in the living room. Of the hoofed animals, broiled or ground into burgers, you may eat, but not in the living room. Of the cloven-hoofed animal, plain or with cheese, you may eat, but not in the living room. Of the cereal grains, of the corn and of the wheat and of the oats, and of all the cereals that are of bright color and unknown provenance you may eat, but not in the living room. Of the quiescently frozen dessert and of all frozen after-meal treats you may eat, but absolutely not in the living room. Of the juices and other beverages, yes, even of those in sippy-cups, you may drink, but not in the living room, neither may you carry such therein. Indeed, when you reach the place where the living room carpet begins, of any food or beverage there you may not eat, neither may you drink.
But if you are sick, and are lying down and watching something, then may you eat in the living room.
