Did you ever send your child to time out? I recall times when we told one of our children to go to their room or over to the corner of the family room and sit in time out. Time out was a way of pulling them out of the misbehavior they were presently exhibiting and giving them a few moments to think about their actions.
Have you ever wished you could send adults to time out?
Have there been occasions when you know you probably should find a chair and go sit in time out yourself?
This Wednesday, February 17, is Ash Wednesday on the Christian calendar. I like to look at Ash Wednesday and Lent as an opportunity for a self-imposed time out. I didn’t grow up observing this tradition, but over the years, this season before Easter celebration has become a meaningful time.
