Using Timers with kids

One of my favorite parenting tools has been the timer. We started using them when Brady was just 2 years old. It could be a clock, watch, phone, stopwatch, microwave timer or wind-up timer. Or even an hourglass! We use one of these all the time. When it beeps or dings, time's up or we have to go somewhere or time for homework or when the hourglass runs out time to get out of the bath.

You have X minutes to do this chore or that chore. Coupled with 1-2-3 Magic you can get through a  lot!
