I had no idea until I looked it up.  I thought it had been banned nationwide years ago.

I think making a little kid sit in a corner for X amount of minutes is a better way. I did that to kids I took care of (for free). They loved me.

Time outs get good results. Often a child who is acting out wants attention.  When you remove all attention, being bad doesn’t seem as much fun.

Sometimes adding a chore is brutal.

I knew it was still allowed somewhere, but I had no idea it was almost half the country!

Yes, 22 states, but if teachers refuse to use it, it won’t happen.
