in thread 'better mousetrap': how to perform timed event

I thought of this approach but wasn't able to come up with a really good way for the parent to know when the child finished counting. I am guessing that I would perform something to find out when the child is reaped (supposing it exits when the timer is finished?).

I apologize for some of the misunderstanding. This goes into somethings that have never been quite clear to me.
