Jaag's "Time's Up, Time Out" Stuffed Animal Timer
How do you handle "Time Outs" if you give them? I’m at the point of starting them with my toddler, though he’s still a little on the young side. But keeping track of how long Ben has been in time out is a little difficult. Sometimes I get distracted with someting else. Sometimes I forget to look at my watch. I’ve heard that you should give a timeout corresponding to the child’s age, so that would be a minute and a half for Ben. Jaag aims to make that task a little simpler for you. Their cute stuffed animal timers come in four styles: brown bear, dog, frog and lamb. You could set it from one minute up to 60 minutes.
We checked out the bear and the frog. You could use this a way to help with timeouts at home (or this would work in a classroom too). For busy mommies such as myself, I liked the stuffed animal timers because I could set it for a minute or two and not have to worry about checking my watch. It also was a great tool to teach my son about what a "Time Out" is.
You can also use this for positive reason. Set the time for 30 minutes of tv watching, when it goes off, so does the tv! It can also teach the concept of time, or you can set the clock for either clean up time, taking turns or use it to show the last 10 minutes of a playdate. Such a great idea, we are going to get a lot of use out of ours!
