Start taking his stuff away instead? Say nope, no timeout but I'm taking your motorcycle for an hour.

I am thinking he is really mad at you and wants time alone. I would let him have alone time for a few minutes then go in and talk to him about why he is so mad at you, and most likely its over the motorcycle.
So when he says why, just explaine it to him, your reasoning on taking it away...kwim?

He barely gets timeouts anymore anyway because they aren't effective for him. That's why I started with the taking stuff away. But throughout the day, he's always doing shit on purpose and asking to go into timeout. Like he WANTS to be punished. If it for attention?

My son is three too! I would take his motorcycle away until tomorrow only if he's behaves the rest of the day & make him clean the mess he made of the entertainment vented but definitely wouldn't send him to time out if he's asking for it.

The thing is, if I leave him anywhere alone he flips shit. I don't want to make him more mad than he already is. But I can always try it and see what happens.

I feel bad now. I don't know if he was mad at me for sorting the laundry and not catering to his needs, or if he was still mad about having to do his chores and getting his motorcycle taken away.

I would do time out, but in a boring area of the house, not his room.

maybe he juts wanted alone time, and instead of asking to be left alone he made it so he had to go in timeout?
i would do a different punishment if he WANTS timeout. take away his favorite toy, or no TV or something along those lines.

Its not your fault, they need to learn that you need time to keep the house in order. Try getting him to help you in small ways with laundry, dishes, cleaning... that sort of thing. If he acts up and makes a mess, tell him if he cleans it up you'll play a special game with him or something like that.

Thats why you need to asak him why he is mad........When my kids were about 3 whenever they got mad or were starting to get mad, I would put music on and let them dance out their anger for a few minutes. When it was done I would ask them why they were mad or angry etc....

After doing it for a about a week they would get angry and go turn it on themselves then come and tell me why they were angry.

It worked for my kids, may not help with other kids. But maybe soemthing simular for futur cases of madness. lol
