From the Manufacturer
The Stoplight Golight Timer helps everyone manage time simply. It's red light/green light concept is easily relatable to everyone, even children as young as 2 years old. Simply set desired amount of time. Press START and red light illuminates which signals for child to STOP and FOCUS on task at hand. Once time is up, green light illuminates which lets the child know time is up and it is time to GO. Let the Stoplight Golight Timer help manage bedtime/wake times, nap times, brushing teeth, timeouts, TV time, reading/homework time. The possibilities are endless. The Stoplight Golight Timer is unique in that it is a visual and audible time indicator. You can choose to use just the lights or implement the audible alarm as well. Please note, he yellow light is there for aesthetics and does not illuminate. This was done for two reasons. 1. We wanted the child to focus on task and not timer. We found that when yellow light illuminated child would then focus on timer to see when time was up. 2. Utilizing yellow light would take up too much battery power and we didn't want our customers to change batteries often - that can get expensive. The Stoplight Golight Timer is a great tool for children, parents, teachers and families. Let the Stoplight Golight Timer help you and your family manage time simply.

-It can run on battery, but also comes with a plug.
-Only the red and green lights actually illuminate, which in the instructions it talks about why. I am really happy the yellow doesn't work because I think it would only add confusion.
-The timer is set based on how long you want it to be red for, not actually a time of day you want it to turn on/off for. It must be reset every time, which only takes about 10 seconds. Sometimes this could mean you're doing a bit of math in your head. I actually just set it for 8 hours every night and 2 hours every nap time.
-This could be great for timeouts, homework, TV time, ect. My 12 year old actually said she wanted one for reading.
Here's our experience with it. My 3 year old has always been an excellent sleeper. Right after his 3rd birthday he started getting out of his crib. It took him longer because when he was 2 he got out once, fell on his face and got a bloody and swollen lip. Whenever he seemed tempted to climb out I reminded him of that and he decided against trying to get out. About a week after his 3rd birthday that was done and he was getting out. Within a matter of days he went from 2--3 hour naps a day and easy bedtime to no naps and a bear to put down at night. I would put him in his crib for a nap and he would climb out. I would do timeout, he would scream, then back to the crib, then climb out, then time out. It was a cycle of 2 hours of hell for me. I decided to think about options because without a nap he was acting horribly all evening and I wasn't getting anything done all day.
I decided to do a few things all at once. I ordered blackout curtains and this light. We changed his crib into a toddler bed and bought him his favorite Paw Patrol bedding. We made these changes all in one day and made a big production about how big of a boy he was. We setup the light and went over how it worked. I was prepared to offer some sort of reward (most likely a sticker each time) for him following the "red in bed, green get up" rule, but amazingly I never had to. He responded incredibly well to the light.
I know that my son likes having control. If I try to take control of something and he wants control, it becomes a power struggle. He's a very much "I want to do it myself" boy. I tried to give him some of the power with choosing various little things, like books and clothes, but the struggle was still there. The light took that power struggle away. I know it sounds a little nuts, but it's like he now doesn't think it's me telling him it's bedtime, it's the light turning red that makes it bedtime. He no longer argues with me. It's not me versus him anymore. Now at naptime I turn the light to red and he gets right in bed. We read 2-4 books while laying in bed together. Then I close the door and he stays in his bed! I have a camera in his room and am amazed that he'll lay in there, sometimes tossing and turning for 20-30 minutes and never gets out of bed. Then whenever he wakes up and the light is green he runs out saying "green light". He'll even take people in his room and show them the green light and actually really loves it.
When I ordered this my husband rolled his eyes, thinking I was being silly. He hadn't yet been home during the day and witnessed the circus production of trying to get him to sleep. About a week after starting these changes and witnessing how effective they were, my husband admitted that it was genius. I can't promise that the light will be as effective for you as it is for me, but if you're at the end of your rope like I was, it's worth a try. Or alternatively, it might not be a bad idea to start before it gets bad and just get them in the habit of it. I'm posting a few pictures of the light and then the 4th picture is of my son waiting quietly in bed for it to turn red. I will say, I don't abuse the power of the light. I set it every night for 8 hours, which he usually sleeps 10. I set it for naps for 2 hours, he usually sleeps 2-3. I don't want him to wake up and have it on for a long time after. I feel it wouldn't be effective if he started disliking it. 95% of the time he wakes up and it's already green and he gets really excited about it. I want to keep it fun for him. Anyway, I will end the long story here. Feel free to ask if you have questions!
3rd night and we're seeing a big improvement with our 4y/o, you may need some work in the first nights as we did, first night we took our son back to his room 4 times, second and third night he didn't come over at all, the results came instantly with the stoplight... still we're not crying victory yet as this is just the begining but we're glad we decided to buy the stoplight we're very confident this is gonna help us to teach our kids to be organized and to learn to manage their time.
