How about a little thing called parenting? You know, tell them they have a certain time, then tell them to stop. I know, novel concept....lol
SM 4.1 (v499) - BootMii/IOS v1.5 - HBC 1.1.2 - Priiloader 0.8b6 - d2x v9(r49) - WiiFlow 4.1.1
Must read threads

Also, if the save is not corrupted, any progress will be lost. That's still a pretty big loss, if you ask me.
Overall though, i think the main reason that there isn't an ideal solution to that problem is because most people understand that the Wii isn't a babysitter. There are parental controls to help when you walk out of the room for 20 minutes to prevent them from launching something that you don't approve of. If you happen to be in a situation where you need to leave your kids (appropriate age of course) home for extended periods of time, you can check the time log later on and react appropriately. One 12 hr wii day isn't going to hurt a kid as much as parents who expect games/computers to do their parenting for them.
Edit: No offence to the OP, i'm not trying to judge anyone. I think it is a valid question for someone new to the scene, and obviously an interesting enough of a topic to spark a discussion.
