Weininger, O. Time-In Parenting Strategies. esf Publishing, 1998.

What Dr. Weininger suggests to parents is that they help children who are angry, unhappy, -willful, or upset by sharing their own emotional control with the child. If the parent doesn’t get upset at the child’s behaviour, if the parent sits with the child and verbalizes the child’s feelings, the child is both comforted and given a sense of control…Although more demanding than “time-outs”, “time-ins” are likely, for example, to handle adolescence better than children who have been reared on “time-out”.
