Teach your kids early on that time is of the essence. Instead of warning them they've only got an hour to get something done, set this Time Tracker Mini ($20) and stick it in front of them. Those precious minutes will tick away until a yellow warning light starts flashing, at which time we're sure blood pressure will start rising and a healthy panic start kicking in as they scramble to finish before it goes red. It's a great way to prepare them for a lifetime of racing around like stressed-out messes.
