Timekid solves a problem that all parents in the 21st century know all too well: children who spend too much time in front of laptops, pads or smartPhones. Timekid is essentially a clock, which counts down agreed upon time. Once the child is on an electronic device, the clock is started manually, when it stops or pauses, the clock is stopped. The default settings for time per day are 3o minutes for weekdays and 60 minutes for Saturday and Sunday. In addition, time can be added or subtracted for the current day.
Timekid is based on trust, because children are very willing to adhere to agreed rules if they are consistent and applied fairly. With the kids version of timekid the children can also check on their own device to see how much time is still open. This version does not allow any changes to the rules, but it has an additional feature: demanding quality time with the parents. If the child clicks here, the addressed parent receives a message that will immediately open the calendar. Sometimes it takes such little reminder of how valuable and short the childhood of our “digital natives” is.
