Being a parent isn’t always fun. There are times in every parent’s life when they have to deal with their children’s bad behavior. Teaching them a lesson can be a difficult task and each parent has a different approach to it. When words don’t work, a thinking chair can be a peaceful option to “punish” your children and give them time to reflect on their behavior.
The thinking chair has become Recent fashionable “educational invention”, with educators and parents for and against the method. But we are not going to get to the bottom of the educational question, but we are showing you a “do it yourself” project to make a stool with an hourglass from recycled materials.

In this link You’ll learn about the materials needed to build this stool and a step-by-step guide to completing this project. So the next time your child needs to think, you can ask them to sit down for 5 minutes and have an open and mature conversation with them.
