Time In: Approach to Building A Cooperative Relationship with Children
This technique of using Time In, is implemented by designating a quiet, comfortable area that is to be used for calming and regulating emotions, regrouping and child-directed down time. It’s a place where comfort is available and company too, if requested through both verbal and non-verbal actions (i.e. a child reaching to hug a caregiver). Children are provided with the opportunity to engage in comforting, soothing and appropriate play.
