Long story short married for 3 years, daughter is currently 3, divorced for 1 year.
This year, for Father's day, my ex-wife let me spend the whole day with my daughter, which I was over the moon delighted to do. This was the first time I was able to get to spend an extended amount of time with my daughter alone since the divorce.
I noticed some odd behavior that I am not sure if I should be concerned about:
After getting my daughter ready for bed, we were watching TV, something happened - I am not sure what - but for some reason I had to be put in time out.
My daughter took my hand, led me to the bathroom, turned out the lights and closed the door. At first I thought it was cute. I turned the lights back on and she immediately opened the door, pointed at me, said something (I am really not sure what - incoherent broken sentences) - definitely a scolding, I'm sure - turned the lights back off and closed the door.
I waited for about 10 seconds, opened the door, picked her up, played with her for a minute and whatever I did wrong was forgotten.
My concern here, and do keep in mind I do not have a lot of children experience:
I kind of think of kids as monkey see monkey do at this age. Should I be worried my daughter is being locked in a dark room as a form of time out?
