February Sweepstakes: Win a Revibe Connect

Enter to win a Revibe Connect — the discreet vibration reminder system that helps children with focus and attention issues to stay on task and boost their confidence naturally. To enter, just answer this question: What do you find most challenging — or liberating — about pandemic time?

What Day Is It, Anyway?!?

Without school buses and basketball practices and dance recitals to ground our days and our weeks, it’s easy to lose track of time. Every day feels like Wednesday, which is disconcerting and draining. This pandemic time warp also makes it tough for our children to stick to a healthy routine, to maintain focus at school, and to remember deadlines.

How Revibe Connect Helps

Revibe Connect is the watch that reminds students to get back to work. Working at home or school, kids feel a gentle, automated ‘vibration reminder’ from Revibe on their wrist. This type of discreet redirection empowers students to complete their work independently, improving self-confidence and academic outcomes. Parents and teachers can track student progress with attention span and more on Revibe’s app.

  1. My son is doing virtual learning per our choice this year, the most rewarding thing I have found, is I am able to see how school affects him (to a certain extent) and I am able to help him if he needs help. I don’t have to rely on the school to give me reports of how he is behaving in classes. I am able to see just how hard he works when he is doing his school lessons. I have also found the most challenging part of the virtual learning is being able to see how much focus is an issue for him. I redirect him a lot during the day to help him re focus so he can get back to learning. I know it is a huge problem when he is in the school builidng as well

  2. It’s been nice to not have to deal with a lot of the outside world. When my kids were e-learning in the spring, we spent a lot of time together as a family because we were all home all of the time. I enjoyed that. In the fall, the kids went back to school, which was a little bit of an adjustment. We could have done e-learning, but I think both kids have benefitted from being around their friends. Generally speaking, though, and I almost hate to say this, but we have done very well during this pandemic. We haven’t been able to travel to any national parks like we would have wanted to do, but we have bonded a bit more.

  3. The most challenging thing I find or liberating about pandemic time is my morning chores & spending time with my husband & son is playing board games. Best Regards, Mariann

  4. I seem to miss time a lot. I feel like I am constantly checking and rechecking. I wish we could go back to the way it was before…I need a watch to keep me grounded…lol

  5. I find it hard just to have any kind of daily routine these days. This pandemic is a hard thing to face. I have been in and out of work for the past year now and it is draining me mentally, physically, and socially.

  6. The most challenging thing about the pandemic is thinking about the future and being in my thoughts. Pondering what is next? Evaluating what is important in life, what is non-important? Thus this challenging time has also been the most liberating time having the time to think about this when I wouldn’t have it there was no pandemic.

  7. The most difficult thing for me was getting my child to actually focus on when it was time for school. She had gotten so thrown off with the period of time where they didn’t have anything but the learning packets, that when distant learning came around, it took us a good bit to adjust to that.

  8. Most difficult thing for me is losing my me time. I teach my kids all day and then have everything else going on. I really miss my days. But on the positive note I do like being able to teach my kids.

  9. I find challenging during the pandemic not being able to get out as much to exercise. I haven’t been to gym because of the pandemic. I try to work out at home, but without the equipment it’s not the same. I also find challenging virtual learning for my kids. I have 5 kids in school and they are 100% virtual. It’s been so hard to keep up with them.

  10. huh I find it very difficult to find the extra time just to go huh relax and relax I find it scary and I’m always trying to clean and disinfect I find this so serious I’m scared and not to overreact so my kids don’t its scary

  11. The most challenging for me through this pandemic is socialization. I haven’t seen my sister in almost a year as she lives in a retirement apartment and can’t have visitors. Although we talk on the phone weekly, I miss visiting her in person and hope that will change in the future.

  12. I find the most challenging thing is keeping track of break time, it seems like everything is a break and only a little time is focusing, whereas non-pandemic time it’s the opposite – most of the time is focusing and only a little is break.

  13. Keeping my son focused throughout the day virtual learning is a challenge, however; seeing a full day of school and all the things he has great successes with along with the most challenging aspects of the day has been eye opening.

  14. I am a senior and went to work out at a health club on an almost daily basis before COVID. I was really concerned when I couldn’t go, but now I wonder if I will ever go back. I have discovered the convenience of doing many many different types of workouts which have been at my convenience. I am now exercising more than ever and harder than ever. I do miss the socialization at the health club, but my body has gotten much better workouts!
