Golly, she look awfully happy to be on that time-out bench. As Billy Bonkers always says: Man goes to bed with itchy bum, wakes up with stinky fingers.

She doesn’t look like she’s in time-out, must be the bench. Also as cute aas she is, I’m sure she soesn’t get in trouble anyway.

Seriously, nice bench. keep up the good lwork.

Uh-oh! DHS is going to hunt you down….

Haven’t you heard… Time outs = Child Abuse :^O

Can you make about 20 of them for the school my wife subs at?

This is awesome. I am a kindergarten teacher by day, have been for 7 years now. The new trend is having a “safe place” to go to in the event you need to reflect, calm down, or simply work out a problem. It’s all about making safe choices. As the adult it’s, “Your job to keep them safe, their job to help keep it that way.”

I will be building a Safe Place (Time Out) Bench for my daughter and nephew now that I see this one.
Thanks for the post!

I do declare that that little girl reminds me of Shirley Temple when she was a child. Well, she certainly looks happy about having that bench whether it’s a time out bench or not. Nice work.

All she will remember growing up is the fact that everytime she was bad she was sent to the bench hand crafted with love by a skilled woodworker. She is bound to grow up hating everything to do with woodworking…....too bad for the husband who marries her.

This looks very well made but as your smiling model shows, it’s really adults who need the time out.
