Kids & Parenting: Time out pad

Now, I am not opposed to spanking, but sometimes little kids need to sit and think a minute until they remember how to act right. However, I'm usually multi-tasking and it's hard to keep track of everything at once. This little device was money well spent as far as I am concerned.
It has an adjustable timer, so you can set it for a minute for every year old your child is. You push the button, the kid sits on the pad, the timer starts. When the time is up, a little song plays. If my little sneaks try to get up and go play before their time is up, an alarm goes off.

The end result is that I'm not putting myself in timeout while keeping track of theirs, and I can keep making dinner or whatever I was doing before.
