I wasn't sent to my room when I got in trouble... I liked being in my room. My parents always said the worst thing they could do to me was make me sit in the living room with them! I don't usually send my kids to their room either. I follow my parents lead and make them sit with me!

Yes, I was occasionally sent to my room. It was mostly when I was being particularly obnoxious i.e. whiny, loud, hyper. I would/will send my son to his room if he's misbehaving when he's old enough to understand. Of course, I'd want to talk to him and make sure he knew what he did wrong and not just have him feel like he's stuck in a room for whatever, but I suppose that's a given. BTW, this reminds me of the Nanny and "the naughty spot".

I hardly got in trouble with my parents and if I did it was usually a telling off. I don't think my parents knew what 'time out' was and if you did something wrong or whatever, it was either a telling off or a spanking.

I was sent to my parents room once, as a kid, because my Dad thought that the stuff in my room was way too entertaining. I got even with him, though. They had a room with an attached bathroom. I flushed his toothbrush down the toilet! haha Kids have a wonderful way of getting even.
