I have absolutely no words for this. If I were a kid I'd rather be spanked...

Oh my word.

No thanks! That looks way to cool to be used as punishment. I think I'll stick to our dusty ol' boring corner. No fun allowed!!

If I were a kid put on this mat by my parents, I would almost rather disobey the timeout than actually just sit there only to make the noise, assuming it's loud and obnoxious.

I think this is a great idea! It's so helpful for small kids to have a visual of how long they have left, otherwise it just seems like eternity...

This is either the best or worst idea ever. I can't decide which, though.

I have some. Timeouts of 5 minutes or less are pointless. You may as well give the kid a lollipop as punishment.

disagree with that. time outs for my 3 y/o at 3 mins is quite effective. having said that, i don't think time out on this thing would be effective at all. he would think it was "cool"

Having it feel like eternity is part of the point of a time out. I can see the benefit of having an alert if the child left the mat. My middle child is a wanderer. She gets bored and wanders off forgetting what's going on (especially at nap). I wish I could set this to 2 hours and have it notify me when she gets out of bed.

This sounds like one of those things the insane disciplinarian families on those spouse swapping shows use. Whats up tomorrow Woot, Kid-Sized Radio Shock Collars????

Hey, that sounds kind of cool actually.

I'd like to use this as a parent on those rough days. Lock myself in the bathroom/closet/spare room to let me cool off. I think I'd want more than five minutes, though.

I don't like where this is going. I don't like it at all. All we need now is for some greedy jerk of an entrepreneur to take this concept and roll with it... with a plate of contempt and a side of wickedness.

Imagine what it would be like if this were adapted to the corporate world? If office employees had chairs with pads like this built into them, where you would be forced to sit for a pre-determined amount of time, and violating the timer by standing up early would set off an alarm... or worse, dock you pay and make you come back in on Saturday!

Heck, I just now realized how closely related a time-out punishment is to a desk job. What a terrible thing to conclude with!

I'm telling you, this would be evil. Pure evil. I mean, who the hell would come up with something so sinister? Oh... wait...

Why does the blue on the pad look like it's flaking off?

This product has also opened to me the wide, wide world of youtube timeout videos. I'm not sure if it's more creepy watching parents put their kids in corners or the fact that a lot of parents have posted the videos.

We have one of these and it has really helped to focus our child. He's the type that gets into processes and focusing in on some goal. Previously we had a hard time getting him to stay in a time-out area. He just wasn't understanding it (he's 2). He would go to the corner, stick his nose in it and then immediately come back. With the TO pad he quickly figured out about the time and the alarm going off when you get off the pad, etc.. This is an excellent price too.

The battery life is very good. We've had the same AAs in there for a long time.

It's just the light reflecting off of the shiny outer layer. This has been very durable.

Can a really smart kid use a coin to reduce the length of his time-out?

I can imagine what the photo shoot was like:

No kid, you're not supposed to smile. I don't care how much we're paying you, FROWN, you little whippersnapper!

Okay, if you don't listen, we'll make you sit on the time-out pad. That's not supposed to be funny, you....

Why should the dumb, smart, and moderately smart kids be restricted from attempting bribery?

First off: does time-out really actually work?

Second: if you use this, you're putting your child on the pad. Shouldn't that be saved for later, and not seen as a negative thing?

I just can't get onboard with this. As a parent using timeouts, I have just told my kids to stay away from me and others during this time. Last thing I want is for there to be no rapprochement between my kids and me afterwards (ie, no getting up and running).

A timeout, by design, is a traumatic experience. I want them to have face time with me before going, so I can reaffirm that although I don't like what they did, I still love them.

So I'm guessing you put this on them like a bib, and squeeze their necks into that 3-size hole looking thing. Yeah, must be how it works.

I don't think I'd buy one of these for my child... I would hope that I could teach a child to sit in one place for a few moments as a punishment correctly...

but I am going to buy a few of these for dog training!!!

We're going to use them to teach the dogs to go upstairs to a "place" ie: the mats, and then will know if they get up via the bad noise... and then reinforce them with treats with the "good noise" when the time is up... wonderful.

Now when someone knocks at the door... I can convince my dogs to go away and not jump on the people, but quietly and happily retreat to their "timeout pads"!

HA!

It's quite disturbing that people see this as "insanely disciplinary." Timeouts should not have a time length that the child waits for and should not make fun noises, it will not teach a thing. I don't know what's more ridiculous, this product or people letting their kids do whatever they want.

"Parents have been led to believe that children will use time-out to think about what they did and regain some modicum of self-control. In reality, when children act in inappropriate, aggressive, or obnoxious ways, they are often harboring such strong pent-up feelings that they are unable to think clearly about their actions. Far more helpful than isolation is an attentive listener who can encourage the expression of honest feelings. The healthy release provided by talking, crying, or raging may even prevent the recurrence of unwanted behavior."
