Timeout, Jail - What's the Difference?

After jumping on the furniture for what seemed like the 100th time today, I put Josh in time-out. Josh asks me, "If I'm really good, will you let me out of jail?" To which I respond, "You're not in jail." Josh says, "Oh, I thought I was."

Jail only confines the punished. Time out holds the Mom captive as well, especially if the captive is young and likes to get up

We had the "repent bench"... just because I thought it was so dang funny and it always made me smile when I said... "Get over on the repent bench." When I was that mad I needed a smile. :)
