Product Description

From the Manufacturer

The Time Out Pad is a pressure sensitive pad with a built in timer that helps parents monitor time outs. This simply works by adjusting the timer for one to five minutes and by pressing the start button. Its countdown will start when the child sits on the Time Out Pad and if the child stands up before the countdown has ended, an alarm sounds until they sit back down. This features red, yellow, and green lights that provide a visual countdown signaling the last 30 seconds of the time out. The Time Out Pad comes with a positive parenting guide including 5 steps to successful time outs. It requires two AA batteries which are not included.

Whoever invented this is AWESOME!

Now, he understands the concept that a time out means he has to sit down until the green light comes on and that the yellow light means he's almost done.

I can put her down for one to five minutes in time out and I can walk away knowing she is still sitting right where I left her.

When I first saw this item honestly I laughed however a week later I ended up purchasing it. As a mother of four very young children I have a tendency of putting children in time out but getting distracted by life. As a result two things happen: One my toddler will sneak out and I don't realize it till much later or Two they end up in time way too long. This pad solved both problems, it alerts me if my toddler tries to escape and it sings a fun song when time out is over so that I can talk with my children.

One piece of advice thought. Your child may find this fun at first, mine did, therefore I made sure to explain what it was for and did not allow them to play with it. The novelty of it when it first arrived soon dissipated and they now do not want to be on the time out pad.

He gets off and on it, really trying to prod us to react to the alarm when he gets off, but my goal with time-outs is to get him to calm down and stop the previous behaviour so it works well for that. You can move it from 1 to 5 minutes with a coin to turn the dial, so the child can't really change it. He also occasionally tries to move it around. When we first got it he would turn it on for fun, and one bonus is if no weight sits on it after it's been started it will just give a little tune and turn back off after a minute or so without the annoying alarm going off.

This time out pad is perfect for a toddler who has no concept of time. This pad provides visual and auditory signals. It is also really great for ADHD kiddos.

I bought this hoping to make time outs easier. We have a 5 year old who rarely makes it to time out - typically the first warning is sufficient for him. This pad works perfectly for him. He sits there quietly and watches for the lights. He learned very quickly that he couldn't scoot off and play around even for a second because I would know even if I had stepped around the corner to change a diaper! For him, this pad works perfectly. Our 3 year old is a handful. I had hoped this would make the biggest difference for him because it's hard to enforce time out when he will run away from the corner. We have a 13 month old, so I can't leave her to chase him and put him back in time out a la Supery Nanny for hours on end. For him, this was amusing. He tested to see how many times he could get off the pad before the pad "gave up." He got that it wouldn't, but he also picked up on the fact that the time doesn't START OVER. The timer will PAUSE until he sits back down, whereas I always start the timer over and make him sit the full 3 minutes if he gets up. I wish this pad had that option. He could sit for 10 seconds at a time, with me still putting him back on the pad. I will say that he does like the little tune at the end and now that we've had it a few days, he's treating it less like a toy and more like the consequence it is supposed to be.
From a disciplinary standpoint, I give it 4 stars for the lack of option to re-start the timer versus pausing the timer. 3 minutes to sit doesn't seem like anything when you have to chase the kid around the house a few times and it winds up dragging out over 20 minutes.

From a technical standpoint, I give it 3 stars. The pad is TINY.

My 22 month old granddaughter lives with me. I don't like seeing her in timeout but this works much better than threats and screams. She understands when she's on it that she can't get up, although she does push how far she can go before the alert starts. This pad worked so much better than the gorgeous timeout chairs I had seen and priced at over $100. They just seemed to be too pretty to save for only the timeout situations. This pad can go anywhere. I wish I could figure out how to increase the length of time for the lights and buzzers because I know the time will come when it needs to be a little longer than it is now. Other than that this is a good choice for getting the job done.

I have 3 kids ages 4 and under. The two year old is a terror. I had a horrible time trying to carry out punishments because she is just so bull headed. You put her down for a time out and she is back up the moment your hands are off of her. A two minute time out took a half hour out of my day. The time out pad solved all this right away. It has an alarm that goes off if the child gets up and stops the timer until they sit back down. I can put her down for one to five minutes in time out and I can walk away knowing she is still sitting right where I left her. I love it. It doesn't come with batteries and takes two AA. If your kid is like mine, I would suggest rechargables.

I love how the alarm goes off if they get off while your not looking. The only thing I don't like is that the timer doesn't start over if they get off.

I didn't beleive it when I first read the reviews. I thought like you might be thinking now; "well maybe it worked for those people's kids, but it's not going to work for mine". Let me tell you, it will. It's the most inexplicable thing I've ever experienced. My child won't sit long enough to learn basic speaking skills, but she now sits in timeout for 3 minutes, every time, no matter where we are, and no matter what other tempting or distracting activities are going on around her. We were confining her to a pack n play for timeouts for a year when I got fed up with the fact that A: we couldn't use it outside of the house, B: it took up too much space in our livingroom, C: it seemed so rediculous to have to confine a 2 1/2 year old for a 2 minute timeout, and she learned how to control things when she figured out that if she just took off her diaper and made a big mess she could get the attention that she was likely looking for when she misbehaved in the first place. Plus, it wasn't going to be long before she realized she could just climb out of it. It was becoming totally ineffective and everyone was getting frustrated. I got the timeout pad figuring if it didn't work, we were no worse off than we had been (well, maybe 25 bucks worse off, but it was worth that risk). The first time she heard the alarm sound she got scared, and I wasn't likely to be able to get her back on the pad again without relying on a roll of duct tape, so I figured she'd just be in that stupid pack n play forever, and we decided to just use it as a lighted timer, so we put weights on it and sat it next to the pack n play for about 6 weeks or more.Read more ›
