The Naughty Seat was first issued in Bates Family . It is the UK variant of the Naughty Chair and Stool . The steps might be similar to an actual discipline technique in the show.

Steps Edit

  1. Give a warning using a low toned voice, and come down to their eye level.
  2. Send them to the naughty seat if they continue the bad behaviour.
  3. Explain why they are there.
  4. Leave child on naughty seat for one minute per year of age. (Four year olds for 4 minutes, Seven year olds for 7 minutes.)
  5. If they escape before time is up, bring them back to the seat without any communication and reset timer.
  6. When the timer goes off, come back and repeat why they were there.
  7. Ask for an apology. (If they refuse, leave them on the seat until they are ready.)
  8. Child apologizes.
  9. Hugs and kisses.
  10. Move on.
