Chase Christiansen finally submitting to the Cool Down Area technique after 67 minutes

The Cool-down Area is a discipline technique that first issued in the Christiansen Family.


  1. Come down to their level, give them eye contact, lower your tone, and give them a warning.
  2. If they carry on with the behaviour that wasn't acceptable, send them to the cool down area.
  3. Explain why they are there.
  4. Leave them in cool down area for 1 minute per year of age. (3 years old= 3 minutes, 6 years old= 6 minutes)
  5. If they escape, bring them back to the cool down area, no talking, then reset timer.
  6. When the timer goes off, go and repeat why they were there.
  7. Ask for an apology. (If they refuse leave them in the cool down area until they are ready)
  8. Child apologizes.
  9. Hugs and kisses.
  10. Move on.
