No, really, it is. Better than sliced bread ever was. Why? Because sliced bread never helped anyone’s kid sleep longer. Allow me to enlighten you. literally. Meet the best clock ever:
He’s an un-assuming little fella. Kinda cute actually. But he ruddy brilliant. We put him in little dude’s bedroom about a month ago, after trying everything possible to get him to sleep past 6am. Nothing had worked up until that point. But this guy, oh he worked alright, so well in fact that within the week he was sleeping until 6:45, no longer yelling for us to get him at 6am, and just plain waking up happier. Here’s how it works. From bedtime, throughout the night it’s a night light that glows yellow:
But at your pre-determined time, it switches to the all powerful green light:
And Green, green means go. Any three year old understands that simple instruction. Now, here’s the trick. Start at a time, that your kid usually gets up. Tell them that when the light turns green, they don’t need to call, they can just come out and “surprise” Mommy and Daddy. It will take a couple days of discipline to get them on board. Once they do though, every couple of days you can move the clock back by 5 minutes until, boom, everyone’s sleeping late, and that is worth every penny.
Disclaimer: This clock was purchased with real money, out of desperation, but with real money. You can find these on amazon and I saw one at Barnes and Noble of all places the other day too. Get one, you won’t regret it.
