Thread: remorse time

  1. Unregistered

    remorse time

    When a child/student behaves badly, parents/teachers put the child/student throught a thinking time to feel remorse and think about what is bad.

    What is that time called? Is it reflection time? Is the verb reflect?

    Teacher makes the student reflect his bad behavior.

    Is that correct? I feel reflect has good connotation and not remores

    Re: remorse time

    I've heard "Time Out" or "Quiet Time."

    "Reflect" is the proper verb but should be followed with the preposition "on." Also, "teacher" needs an article, either "a" or "the."

    Corrected Sentence:
    A/The teacher makes the student reflect on his bad behavior.

    I’m not a teacher.


    I have heard “ time for self-reflection” = “time for introspection” = “time for self-examination”

    introspection (n)= the process of looking inward and describing one's own experiences.

    Re: remorse time

    Students who repeatedly act out or receive school violations may be assigned to a "Detention Room." This is really a "time out" room!
