The Naughty Spot Technique, also can be referred to as the "Naughty X" or "Penalty Spot" in some cases, is featured in the Weston Family. A child sits anywhere without restrictions and is given an amount of time for 1 minute per year of age. Soon, the child apologizes to the parent for the bad behavior they have done earlier. Also, it is necessary for the parent to give the child a kiss/hug.


  1. Get down to child's level and give child a warning using a low tone voice.
  2. Send child to the Naughty Spot if warning is ignored.
  3. Explain why they are on the naughty spot.
  4. Set timer for one minute per the year of their age.
  5. Walk away and ignore the child for a period of time.
  6. If child escapes put them back on the spot and reset the timer *No talking*
  7. When timer is up explain again while they were put in time out and ask for an apology.
  8. Child apologizes. *If s/he does not or angrily/screams it leave them there*
  9. Hugs and kisses.
  10. Move on.
