I recently heard some people being rude to their kids

I figure they might mean well yet have kind of semiautomatic social responses If perhaps there had been a thing that could detect when a person raised their voice or used certain phrases near a child then vibrated or beeped the person might remember that they are voluntarily wearing this watchbeeper thing as a reminder to be a competent parent Perhaps Time to reconsider the rudeness

The actual technology idea here is that a little disc that could slip under a watch yet attach to the watch would be nonobtrusive automatically worn plus the person could skip abridging their fashion sense with a more visible device

       Bun for the idea [+] ---- it brings the awareness of poor parental choices closer to real time... But, [MaxB] got me to thinking, what if you walk in on the kid and he is cussing like crazy at a location south of his zipper... might want to rethink the vibrator attachment...

       How about something that goes under the watch that keeps one's arm from going smelly. I don't think it exists and that would be a good product to make a million bucks if you're into that sort of thing. Just knock something together and get it into Walwart quick.

       Bun for the title, and bun for [Max's] anno, and for [ComaSheeptose's] support for Max's anno. The idea is a bit scary to me.

       Now you just need a device to make bad parents wear this funky watch...

Oh come now!
Walmart staff don't smell that bad.
