An unintended consequence is that some kids reason, but rarely articulate: "Just wait, and I'llRead More have to power to punish you with the same impunity that you punish me". Some actually do it - its called Elder Abuse these days, and is in addition to the Child Abuse they inflict on their own kids. What goes around, comes around. The parents of the child subjected to 'time outs' can suffer 'time outs' from their grandkids.

But at the same time, if you do occasionally yell don't confuse yourself for the "Joan CrawfordRead More Mommie Dearest" persona. I see so many parents (especially mothers) who yell at their children on rare occasions and then spend an entire day beating themselves up for it. There's an enormous difference between occasionally yelling at your kids and spending a lifetime terrorizing them. If you do yell and realize it was a poor reaction, use the opportunity to discuss why yelling isn't effective and not a behavior that children should emulate.
