A place for everything and everything in it's place is an often repeated chant in my head right now. That includes finding the right place to park overstimulated, angry and immature children for either a time-out or time-in session. (Time-in is where they are with me because they are having impulse or emotional control issues - we all know what a time-out is.) I have been using my bed since we moved, but I have discovered that it's a little far from the main hub of activity and allows the removed person too much freedom. My deodorant has been eaten, hair products dispensed and electric toothbrush regularly relocated. It's time for a time out/time in location which I can move.
I am thinking about (gasp) an over sized bean bag or something similar but wonder if there is any other option. Has anyone found something A. Portable B. Relatively inexpensive C. Not too ugly D. Indestructible. That meets this purpose? I'm not against the beanbag idea...it's just so 70's!
