My daughter is absolutely, positively amazing. I know we all think that about our kids but seriously, mine really is! 😉 She is extremely bright, loving, polite, giving, beautiful (inside and out), and so many other verbs that I could go on and on. The only time she gets icky a.k.a. has a tantrum is when she is extremely tired and does not feel well. To make this long story even longer, she is what every parent hopes for when they have kids. Gosh, I hope child number two, if we have one, turns out the same!
It is because of this complete awesomeness that I was completely shocked last year when I went in to pick up my little one from Preschool and the teacher asked us to wait until everyone had left so we could talk. She proceeded to explain that my daughter is an absolute joy to have in the classroom. She is all of the verbs that I mentioned above but there is one problem … she won’t sit still. During story time, she would get up and walk around the room. During learning time she wanted to travel to other “stations” to see what everyone else was doing. There were a number of examples but it is all a blur as I started thinking about home life and how often my little one actually sat still. Hmmm, I could see what the teacher was saying. There was even a question about her bottom being too “boney” and maybe sitting on hard surfaces made her uncomfortable. The bottom line was that we needed to address this concern and soon. As we addressed it I kept checking in with the teacher to see if there were improvements and within a month things got better; there were only comments here and there for the remainder of the year.
Summer came, we were active, and then a new school year began. As did the concern about my daughter’s inability to sit still! Once again I started thinking about home life. Now that she mentioned it, about the only time my little one sits still is when she is on her iPad or watching her favorite carton (TMNT) but even that is a stretch. We needed a solution.
Enter Senseez. The vibrating pillow for kids, helping little bums sit!
Senseez are vibrating cushions that offer a gentle sensation when squeezed or sat on. The cushions are bright, lightweight, and fun-shaped and little ones find them relaxing, calming, or soothing. If your kid(s) have trouble sitting for meals, stories, car ride, school work, or anything Senseez may be able to help.
Senseez are for children who have difficulty sitting in one place, fishing a task, getting distracted easily, with tactile sensitivities, and with concentration.
While great for little ones with a lot of energy, the Senseez sensory cushions are also ideal special needs cushions; especially for children with autism, ADHD, or sensory processing disorder. The vibration cushions can clam kids who need more sensory feedback. They are also helpful in training hypersensitive kids to tolerate more sensations.
While we have not advanced to sending our Senseez to school with my daughter, we have been easing her into usage at home. The other night she actually sat still at the kitchen table and worked on her name and phone number; the two things her teacher asked us to work on over the weekend. Without our Senseez this would have been an exercise in futility that likely would have resulted in me having less hair. Two thumbs up from our house.
