Enter to Win a Sonic Glow Extra Loud Alarm Clock

A Daily Morning Battle

This is not the way anyone wants to start her day: Returning to your teen’s room half a dozen times — rousing, pestering, arguing, begging, punishing him until he angrily and slowly gets up and starts his routine. This daily fight is stressful, it hurts your relationship, and it’s not helping your teen build independent life skills. There must be a better way.

Enter the Sonic Glow Extra Loud Alarm Clock with Sonic Bomb Bed Shaker

This dual alarm clock has it all! Use it to help your child fall asleep to peaceful ambient sounds, and then find comfort in the soft glow of the dimmable nightlight. Help him wake up to your choice of three pre-recorded alarms, or have fun recording your own! The Sonic Glow alarm volume can be cranked up to 11 for especially deep sleepers, and this device includes the Sonic Bomb bed shaker, which will wake even the heaviest sleeper without disturbing the rest of the house.

The Sonic Glow has a USB charging station and an AUX connection to play music selected from your phone or MP3 player. It also comes in 4 fun styles: moon, soccer ball, baseball, and nightlight.

  1. My son Caleb is 15 years old and he still cannot wake up without me waking him up each morning we’ve tried all kinds of things I’m hoping that this new alarm clock and bed shaker will do the trick

  2. I am actually the teen responsible for accounting my own sleep regimen. I remind my self every morning that the time I miss by sleeping in closer to by scheduled event hurts my daily routine. For the past few months, I have worked on building a consistent morning routine to ensure motivation and a feeling of pleasure as I get going in the morning. This routine has led to me hitting the snooze button less to ensure I get the fully pleasure of mentally checking off the routines that bring me joy in the morning.

  3. My daughter is going to be 13 and I tell her every day that I can only provide her with the tools she needs but it is up to her to utilize her tools. We still have not found the must have tool that she cannot live without but for school, it’s been a combination of Google Keep and her paperback agenda. She has done better and better each year with her morning routine. She only needs help waking up because a tornado could blow through and she would not hear it (neither would I). Once she is up then she keeps herself moving until it’s time to leave. She would feel even more independent if she could wake up from her own alarm clock.

  4. I have set up a routine from early childhood. My children get their clothes and shoes ready the night before, pack their bags and prepare snacks/lunches I’d needed. They wake up in the morning, get dressed and cleaned up, they gather their school items and are usually at the door waiting for me. I have always made them be responsible for their own things, help set schedules and routines. We use a white board calendar, cork board for notes, and about 6 alarms for wake up. They have their homework station set up and when arriving from school to home, they sit down, get their homework together and begin. The more routines and repition set them up for success because they have a schedule they follow and all the things they need are where they’re supposed to be in the mornings.

  5. My 17 year old (ADHD,Oppositional Defiance, Pre-Menopausal Disphoria Disorder, Executive Function Issues,Lacking Social Skills, Low Self-esteem, Depression, Aniexty on IEP – is in a Technical HS Requiring Busing to School about hour long. She has hard time getting up on own & often shuts off/mutes phone alarms or gets up & shuts off alarm clocks across room & goes back to bed (Or doesn’t hear them & stop going off). I want Her / Need her to get up herself – But haven’t Found A loud Enough Alarm / or 1 that will not stop – Until she’s up getting ready! I have disabilities myself & can Not just Jump up & Drive her every time she misses bus! But with Dr. Appts – she also already misses (dismissals/late arrivals) Quite Enough School Already. I really Need this Alarm Clock to Get Her Up & Out for Bus (so she can be Independently Responsible for Getting herself to School) She’s Junior & Co-operrative Education Internship – Start this Month! Her Therapists & Mentor & School – All want Me to Back Off & Make her Accountable for herself & Getting herself to School…
