Reviewer: Amy, mom of Aidan, 8, and Andrew, 6
The Challenge: Aidan struggles with homework, and we used the oven timer to help him manage how long he should be working on each assignment. I want Aidan to manage his own time rather than having me monitor it for him.
The Solution: My Time Activity Timer has buttons with icons representing different activities -- TV, video games, computer. You set the timer for a selected activity, and a voice recording gives 10- and five-minute warnings until time is up. I struggled to set the timer, but my sons found it easy to use. The warnings were a little muffled, but the boys caught on quickly. They were excited to monitor time on their own.
