Time-outs are typically viewed as an effective parenting technique, but the latest brain research suggests that they may be making things worse. Instead of using time-outs as a break, parents have used them as punishment. This isolates the child and eliminates the possibility for connection and compassion at a time when they need it most.  We discuss the blog written by Dr. Daniel Siegel and Dr. Tina Payne Bryson, where they share how the latest brain research have proved time-outs ineffective.

We share an update about Erin and Aaron Kreiger – they shared their journey of grief and infant loss back in June – (click here for Part 1 and Part 2 ), as well as a blog titled  25 ways to ask your kids “So how was school today?”
