Text Reminders are an easy, effective way to support your child
We could all use a personal assistant to chauffeur us through the day, reminding us of important tasks and helping us manage our time. For some students struggling with focus and task-completion, this constant 1-on-1 assistance is a reality in the classroom but it's far less glamorous. In fact, it can be ostracizing. But if you find yourself wishing you could be at school with your child to nudge them in the right direction and provide positive affirmation, you're not alone. This is why Revibe has included a customizable Text Reminder feature alongside of its automated Vibration Reminders.
A Text Reminder is a custom message that is preset in the app to appear on Revibe's screen at a selected time. Here are some examples:
While it's great to have the freedom to customize as many Text Reminders as you would like for your child, it may feel overwhelming to decide what those messages should contain. Because our Customer Service Team is always looking for ways to make your life a little easier, we've compiled the top 5 ways to use Text Reminders using our insight and real customer feedback.
If your child has trouble remembering specific things throughout the day, this is a great option for you. A simple reminder on Revibe's screen will help them catch that bus on time, remind them which room number their next class is in, trigger them to write down their homework, etc...
- Write down homework
- Bring lunchbox home
- Catch bus at 7 am
- Math room 108
Encouragement makes the world go round, and it could make your child's day! Uplifting messages are just as important as reminders for focus and tasks. So, cheer on your child from afar by programming some positivity! Your encouraging message will put a smile on their face, boost their confidence, and increase their productivity for the day because they know someone believes that they are capable.
- You got this!
- I Love U
- Keep going!
Assignments, tests, and just the daily demands of life can be nerve-wracking to anyone, but they can especially be challenging for children. Revibe can be used to assure them that everything will be okay. Feelings of anxiety can shorten your child's breath, so a few reminders to take a deep breath throughout the day can help to regulate this. You can schedule as many Text Reminders as they need, as long as each are one minute apart.
- Take a deep breath
- You are okay
Are you starting to teach your child the importance of chores and responsibility? Revibe has you covered! Through our Text Reminder option, you are able to remind the user of their tasks without constantly having to voice them. When your child is able to view their tasks on Revibe’s display screen and complete them, they will feel the accomplishment of getting the job done without having to be directly told or reminded of what to do. Building confidence and promoting independence like this at home can only help your child's attitude at school.
- Clean room
- Make lunch
- Take out trash
- Do dishes
Building or Breaking Habits
Do you think your child needs a little extra help in building or breaking a habit? The Text Reminder feature can also be used as a tool for this! If your child has a habit that you would like kicked to the curb, just set it as a reminder for them throughout the day. This way you will have the peace of mind that they are being reminded, and they won't experience a lapse in progress away from home. The opposite works as well! If you are trying to instill good habits in your child, the Text Reminder feature can help remind them of that habit throughout the day.
- Don't bite your nails!
- Make bed
A small Text Reminder during the day puts your child one step closer to achieving a future goal. When the user feels as though they have visual support, their confidence will be lifted and they will be able to focus without the anxiety of forgetting a task. Revibe can bring you and your child the peace of mind you have been searching for.
