On the ceiling, with new little gecko jumpsuit.

Leave them hanging around till their behaviour changes. It might take some more robust sound proofing but modern homes are pretty good.

An anamorphic pen graphic on the ceiling might make a little reminder.

       I like the gecko outfit part. Nice visual. +

       Thanks, a bit of future whimsy.

       The obvious solution, then, is flatter children.

       [bigsleep] The surface area for my imagining was the whole back of the jumpsuit.   

       Our designs, unlike in nature, that have greater strength because they are very specific. The ceiling surface could be a large factor in what ever you want to do with this nano velcro.

       Yes, high up on the patio/ranchslider door works too. Facing out would need the jumpsuit on backwards or placing the child on the outside.   

       Prison bars could be painted on the opposite side to the little actor.

       Soundproofed hamsterballs, and when the hamsterball gets too big for the house, put it on a chain in the front yard or driveway. Maybe the hamsterball too.

       /infant velcro/ Different problem similar solution, probably more cruel because of the time of use. Would breathing be better from a ceiling position?   

       Timeout is a short duration which means a constant wear jumpsuit is probably not the best design. A quick put on 'naughty' harness may be more realistic. Also, you could threaten with the harness as a quick fix behavior change.

       explanation please? for those of us from a different culture...   

       Is this referring to punishment of kids misbehavior by hanging them from the ceiling inside a "jumpsuit" that will drop them if they continue "misbehaving"?   

       I googled for jumpsuit, and for some reason think you probably meant something else.

       "coveralls". Or "child jumpsuit". There are one or two more precise terms, but they escape me currently.
FlyingToaster, Jun 29 2015
  

       No dropping, just locked up for a period of time .   

       Jumpsuit = a one piece garment with legs and arms that zips/buttons up the front.

       If it doesn’t drop, what’s the “timeout” part? What times out, or expires, and how do you set the duration of the “timeout” feature?
Ian Tindale, Jul 01 2015
  

       The break from supervision times out and is usually set by length cat nap or task duration.
