Talking about handlling children's emotion. There are two expression I would like to clarify.
1. Are ground time and time out the same?
2. Can I say:
3. When a child was sent by the teacher to stay or sit aside the class, does it mean he is having time out or ground time.
- He needs some ground time to calm down himself.
- He needs some time out to calm down himself.
The term "grounded" originates from a term used when pilots are/were disciplined for some violation and results in a period of time during which they may not fly.
