ADHD and the Nagging Epidemic

No one likes nagging. We know it plants the seeds of stress and resentment. But sometimes we just don’t know what else to do when homework is entering its second hour, baseball practice starts in 15 minutes, and your child is staring out the window again. That’s when we feel chained to the vicious cycle of nag, nag, nag… until action follows.

How Revibe Connect Helps

Revibe Connect is a U.S. Department of Education-funded wearable that improves focus & attention span with quiet, gentle vibration reminders to the wrist. The device connects to an app that tracks the user’s progress over time and celebrates their improvements. First generation Revibe saw immediate, sustained improvement in 83% of students with self-regulation deficits.

    1. Forgot to mention the nag – I wish I never had to remind my son to bring home his agenda from school, the activities he has each day, and that we have to leave the home by 8:00 am.

  1. I most hate being nagged about willpower. That I don’t have it and should finally have it. I tried many times to explain my relatives that I do have willpower but I cannot use it all the time. It’s not natural and it is exhausting to use willpower for every little everyday task. I found out that maybe I have more willpower than normal (NT) people because I had to use it for simple tasks that normal people do not even notice. Take out the garbage and risk that I meet one of the neighbors. I do not hate them, but still it can cause a great deal of anxiety and stress. And to take the bus to work, and do the shopping, etc.
    So I really really hate when they tell me that “yeah, life is hard but you have to get yourself together and have willpower”.

  2. I am taking care of my grandson. He loves technology and works hard to keep up with all of the demands on his time. I see how stressed he can be and have often wished for a positive and reliable tool to help with time management. This looks like an answer to a prayer.

  3. I wish I never have to nag to my daughter and that she can remember to bring all her belonging back home everyday after school. “Please remember to bring home all your belonging” This is a sentence that I have to constant repeat every single day to my daughter but she still forget things in school. 🙁

  4. I have been looking for something like this for a while now. It would be so wonderful to not have to live life on repeat with constant nagging and reminding to do every day tasks.

  5. I try not to nag too much, but a child with ADHD makes that nearly impossible. The things I nag about most frequently about are putting things away when she is done with them, bringing her jackets/sweaters home from school, and to not take her sisters things. The Revibe sounds like an exciting instrument to use to help!

  6. I have to stay on my two children constantly to Get ready to leave the house. They get distracted and forget to even wear their shoes out the door in winter.

  7. I am a mom to 2 boys. I am constantly saying, “don’t miss, flush and wash.” I try not to nag too much. I do find myself trying to keep them on task or asking them multiple times to do something.

  8. She has no concept of time. I will send her to do a task and 20 minutes later she is doing something else and the task has not been complete (or maybe even started). Would be nice to have something that gives her a quick “poke” to remind her she is supposed to be doing something….rather than me having to nag.

  9. So many things I find myself having to remind her to do, but the most pressing is that I find I always have to nag my daughter to brush her teeth (she recently got braces). I think a tool like the Revibe would increase her independence with this and other tasks like cleaning her room, doing her homework, and taking care of the pets. Thanks for this opportunity!

  10. It’s always the silly little things that my little guy forgets… Washes his hands but forgets to dry them, let’s the dog out that forgets to close the door, gets dressed but forgets to take off his pj shorts under his pants lol.

    I always feel bad nagging because they’re so minor and I know he’s trying, but good grief do they add up

  11. Ours is all about school. Mastered the stuff at home. At schools it’s, bring home ur homework, sit in your seat, pay attention, no talking…SO MUCH TALKING. He’s great with us but once we are out of site he’s a wild man. This would work good for him. I think…we have been thinking about getting him one!
