Time Out Mat

So, my newest purchases for Little Miss Blakely has been this lovely, Time Out Spot Discipline Rug! Something I just know she is just super excited about! I had been reading articles about this award winner mat/spot/rug, so ofcourse, I google it and find this website:http://www.timeoutspots.com/. I also purchased it from this website as well.
It was super informative! Here is a little what the site states. "Time Out Spots are a discipline technique designed to help discipline children ages 18 months and up. When a behavior problem arises, children should be given one warning. If they do not obey, they should be sent to sit on their "Time Out Spot." When calling a time-out one minute of time out is recommended for each year of the child's age (example: 3 years old/3 minutes). Time out technique is a very effective way to manage unwanted behavior. To learn more about using the time out technique successfully, please refer to the links below."- timeoutspots.com
Blakely has been showing us her "temper" lately and we have been enforcing time-out time.
She likes to hit and pull hair. I guess I should be glad she hasn't been biting?
This is the rug we got, but we got it in the brown/khaki.
