I'm not to sure about this as a child's time out...perhaps before the need for a timeout...or when u see another child having a melt down. Though I do agree in directing and teaching kids this is how to give yourself a time out...but don't know that it would work in this age group. ....been there done more.

If parents desire to teach their children self-control, they must first form the habit themselves. The scolding and faultfinding of parents encourages a hasty, passionate temper in their children. CG 94.2 Child Guidance, Ellen G. White
