Maybe we need to up the ante on the time outs...

Our "discipline method" of choice with Zach (and Alex, too, if she needs it) is the "time out". I'm beginning to wonder about the effectiveness of said discipline technique, however. Yesterday Zachary hit his big sis, then proceeded to toddle over to the stairs and give HIMSELF a time out!!

As a friend pointed out, maybe we've just done a very good job parenting if Zach's already doing a cost-benefit analysis. He just figured the pleasure he would get out of whacking his sibling would outweigh the downtime he would incur as a result of said whacking.
