My sister, Amy is the ultimate mom. She has two toddling kids ages 3 (Zachary) and 4.5 (Sophie) who has Turner’s Mosiac Syndrome. She is in therapy with the special school district every Monday for 2 hrs to work on physical and occupational therapy. Amy is a pilot turned massage therapist turned mom who knows a good product when she finds one. This is the first of her product reviews on the “On Task On Time” Timer. Read on..
On Task On Timer timer was awesome!!! I ordered 2 (one for sophie, 4.5 yrs, and one for zachary, 3 yrs) Thur and it came Saturday (yesterday). Today was the first day we used it. It’s worth EVERY PENNY and then some! Sophie and Zachary were dressed and fed in 30 min, even had teeth brushed and shoes and coat on!! We have 2 hrs before church starts, but sophie insists playing before church with her coat on since it was on her On Task On Time Timer and she already did it! Sophie followed it exactly, even ate breakfast which is usually a 45 min nagging session in the morning! She did it in 10 min!! WOW!! Zachary didnt follow it quite as well, but he’s younger and not motivated by reward charts as well as Sophie. But i think over time and as he grows he will get it. He did alright, just wanted to brush his teeth for 45 min instead of the 2 min that I scheduled for him! He will get it, it was his first day. Sophie was a Champ!! I am so glad I got it for her! She was my morning routine problem anyway, so I am glad that is solved! You have to read the Amazon reviews since they give awesome tips. I spaced it out so sophie and zachary were not trying to potty or brush teeth at the same time. It worked well! i just think zachary is a bit young but will get it in time, probably within the month. I am glad I got them and I dont dread mornings anymore!!!
The lady who invented this timer has 4 kids! When her TRIPLETTS were 5 yrs old she needed a solution for morning routines and invented this timer! She deserves the Nobel Peace Prize!!!!!
I am so happy with Sophie that I want to give that lady more than the $49 I paid for it! Can I mail her a tip?!?!? HA!!
She was NOT getting dressed by herself, getting on the potty by her self, putting her coat on herself. She is 4 and half!! Today, she did ALL those things HERSELF!! I cant wait to tell her therapist tomorrow!! I highly recommend this Timer to anyone you know who has kids age 4-12! (well, my husband asked if he could get one for himself….)
