Getting your child to get out of bed can be quite a challenge. My five–year–old niece could sleep through a hurricane. When she started school, my sister had to start to crow like a rooster to get her to rise.

They could have used one of these Clocky Alarms ($50) that can drop down three feet and roll around your room until you give chase and turn it off. Now if that doesn't get your child out of bed, then good luck.

What do you think of the Clocky Alarm?
