"The mental health of all children is really being affected in a negative way with virtual learning...It's been really tough trying to keep the children motivated to do the online learning...It's difficult to help with their work because at times the directions are unclear...plus the numerous issues with the internet and technology cause[s] even more stress on the children. As a parent you have no time to yourself as your children need your support all day. "

Rob G. (Elementary School Teacher, 2 daughters in elementary school)

For most parents, the COVID-19 era has been the worst year of their lives because it’s been so difficult for their kids having to adapt to online learning. “The mental health of all children is really being affected in a negative way with virtual learning, ” says, Rob G., a father of 2 daughters. Like many parents, Rob has been struggling to find a way to help his children through this stressful way of learning. 

One thing that’s helped many parents and their kids adapt to online schooling and working from home is the weighted blanket.

How Weighted Blankets Help Kids adapt to online learning:

Weighted blankets help because they are great tools for relieving stress, reducing anxiety, and calming the mind for improved focus and sleep. 

In fact, studies have shown that sleep deprived kids have more difficulty concentrating and focusing on a specific task like listening to the teacher, especially when it comes to online learning. 

Sleep deprivation can affect your kid’s school performance in two major ways:

  1. When kids are too tired, they are unable to focus or pay attention. This can cause kids to miss important verbal lessons, which means they’re unable to complete specific school tasks. And ultimately, the result is more stress. 
  2. Kids who have a goodnight’s sleep will have a better time remembering the previous day’s lessons. This is because kids form their memories best during sleep. 

Weighted blankets are a great solution for helping kids adapt to online learning. They have been known to help kids get enough quality sleep, and as a result, many kids have enjoyed being able to focus more on their studies. Thus, kids are less stressed, and when they’re less stressed, parents are less stressed.

It arrived in fabulous packaging, with a lovely booklet about the blanket. The blanket itself is soft and comfortable but also durable... My daughter suffers from terrible anxiety and this has really helped her to calm down before she sleeps and it also helps her to remain asleep. She used to have nightmares too but they went at the same time! I'm amazed at the results, there has been an immediate change from restless nights to deep uninterrupted sleep...Thank you all at Kalmkoala, I can't thank you enough x
