Kids no longer have excuses for losing track of daily chores and routines like getting ready for school, doing chores or preparing for bed, thanks to a new timing system, On Task On Time for Kids. Invented by Moschel Kadokura, a mother of triplets plus one, On Task On Time for Kids uses an innovative, fun system that guides children to independently complete morning, afternoon and evening tasks.
Parents with children of any age struggle with routines, and they often find that keeping school age children on task is a difficult process that leads to parental nagging and yelling. Kadokura based her system on research that proves implementing structured routines with school age children helps them navigate through difficult transition periods, like getting ready for school or preparing for bedtime. "I wanted to create a product that gives children a focal point to help them step through each task in a timely manner," Kadokura stated.
On Task On Time is a portable time management system that utilizes pictures and colors to help kids pinpoint what task they are completing, what has already been accomplished, and what is next to be done. Parents place the colorful task stickers on a routine disk, which is then mounted on the timing unit. As the routine disk moves, kids can see exactly what they should be doing by the task sticker that appears on the timer. Three routine disks are included for division of morning, afternoon and evening tasks, and there are 52 task stickers to set up the routines.
Kadokura invented On Task On Time when her triplets were 5 years old and getting ready for Kindergarten. Now teenagers, Kadokura credits the timing system for getting her children through early school years. "Getting my kids ready was an hour-long struggle filled with constant nagging and yelling," she remembered. "The first time I used On Task On Time, I had a feeling of being relaxed and in control for once in the morning. My children would race to get their tasks done! Once they completed their tasks, they were proud of their ability to do it themselves." Kadokura realized other parents would benefit from On Task On Time, and successful test marketing confirmed its usefulness to parents.
Kadokura encourages parents to use consistency, structure and reward along with On Task On Time for Kids while allowing kids to work independently. On Task On Time is available online at http://www.timelymatters.com, with a full demonstration video available, as well.
