The Value Of A Promise

Growing up my parents would often make promises they had no intention of keeping. Usually these empty verbal contracts were just a ploy to get me to do something or more likely – to stop me from doing something. Whenever I tried to collect on those promises, they would suddenly acquire an acute case of selective amnesia. I wish I have the Credit Seal.

Winner of the 2007 Red Dot Award, the Credit Seal is an digital device that records and stamps an agreement made between parent and child. The next time dad promises a Nintendo Wii for good grades, you can rest assured he will have to divvy up when you bring home that report card. Of course the Credit Seal works for parents too. They can use it to collect on promises made by their children. It teaches kids the value of trust and the importance of meaning what you say.
