Do you use timeouts or not??? Do they work for you?

I was a stickler for them and had this time out clock that was usually a smiley face, but when you set the timer, it would frown. When the timer would ring to signify time out was over, it was smiling again. Now with 2 teens, it is grounding with extra chores and letters of apology.
