Kids wear 20 pound ball and chain to encourage studying

leave a comment »

Strict parents have the perfect way of making sure their kids do their homework – a ball and chain has been created that counts down a reasonable study time before unlocking.

Parents just put in a desired study time on the “Study Ball” and attach the more than 20 pound ball to their kids’ ankle.

A red digital display counts down the time and the chain unlocks and beeps when time is up.

The ball can’t be locked on for more than four hours and there is a safety key that lets parents open the chain at anytime.

The ball’s designer says he came up with the idea after a friend compared studying to jail.

The item is for sale online for about $90.
