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.

This time out mat is a wonderful tool. (I have four children ages 1, 2, 3, and 6)The lights let a child know when there time is almost done (yellow light), and when they are finished with the green light and a song. Also, the alarm feature is fantastic. When they move off the mat, the alarm sounds and stops their time until they get back on. Fabulous!

Another reviewer commented about the size of the mat being too small. I completely disagree. Little tushies don't need that much space, and if they could move around I think it defeats the purpose of a time out and sitting still. Also, the smaller size allows for the alarm feature. To me, its just the right size. Small enough to throw in a diaper bag to take with you.

The four star review is because the timer only allows for a max of 5 minutes. I would prefer it go up to 10, since this is a useful tool for my 6 year old when he needs a time out. Since he is older 5 minutes may not always cut it. I believe the rule of thumb is 1 minute for each year of age.

All in all, wonderful product.
