Keep bedtime stories on schedule

Digital bookmarks keep time

No matter how hard we try to avoid it, bargaining with our children eventually creeps its way into parenthood for many of us. For example: You let them watch TV only if they've read for a certain amount of time. The problem for us, however, is that we promptly forget to check the clock.

That's why we need the "Mark-My-Time Digital Bookmark," as featured on Chip Chicklets. Not only does it help you keep things on schedule, but it also helps children learn to tell time. After all, what better incentive do kids have than figuring out how much time they need to read before watching their favorite cartoons?
