While browsing Goore’s recently, I came across this little gem (YouTube video). Apparently, how to handle your misbehaving little one is not has easy as it used to be. The Time Out Pad solves your problems by putting your child in virtual lock down.
The makers (Gro-Group) ask, “How do you monitor a time out when you’ve got so many things to do? And what happens if a child gets up during the time out? How does the child know when the time out is finished?” Their solution: a plastic cushion equipped with a red-yellow-green light, a timer, and congratulatory beeping when their time out is over. Unless your kid bails on their time out, and then an alarm will sound.
You know, unless. I guess this is how electric dog fences were created. Oooh, that gives me an idea!

There is an iPad app out that is just like this. It calls your cell phone if the kid gets up, so you can leave the bar and go home to whip the lil’ disobeyer.
I need that iPhone app.
We have just been using a baby monitor to keep track of junior, but that limits us to bars within 1/8 mile of our house. This has been really cramping our social life.
That’s so dumb. Just turn the TV on for him and he won’t get up until you’re done with your chores.
He is only 16mo old. I am worried TV might be bad for his development.
Especially the porn channels and MSNBC.
