How to Prepare Your Children for a Safe Back-to-school?

On 20 August 2020 by Droobi



This year's back-to-school season is going to be unlike any before. With so many questions around school reopening, many parents do not know how to prepare their kids. So, in this blog, Droobi will provide you with simple steps to help you prepare your children to return to school with confidence, optimism, and excitement.


  1. Parents need to know that children are less likely than adults to become infected with the virus. The best evidence suggests that, for many children, returning to school could be safe, if adequate precautions are put in place and enforced.

  2. Help your kids understand the importance of social distancing and wearing masks. Then you can help them practice these skills before school starts and talk about how it will work in school.

  3. Even though your kids may not be able to run up and hug their friends or teachers, you may teach them to use a different, fun greeting while keeping their social distancing.

  4. Talk to your kids about what to do if they do not feel safe or other kids are not following the rules. They should know that they can talk to the teacher or tell you if that happens.

  5. Practice with your children different scenarios ahead of time. This will be a good way to let them know they can play an active role in the safety and well-being of everyone at school.

As a parent, you need to be aware that your kids often take cues about how to react from you. Think about what it takes for you to feel calm and prepared for the start of a new school year. Always do your best to explain school safety precautions ahead of time. This will help your children see them as part of the school day routine instead of something to fear.

Droobi wishes you and your kids a happy school year!

Diabetes Program

I have been living with type 2 diabetes for 5 years now. I used to struggle to maintain my blood sugar levels under control. Droobi has truly changed my life! My blood sugars are at target now, I lost some weight and changed my eating habits. I am so happy with the daily support I receive from my health coach. They are always super-supportive and positive even in my worse days. I really don't know what would I do without my personal coach. Thank you Droobi for helping me live better with diabetes.

Gestational Diabetes Program

On my 3rd pregnancy, I was informed after doing a test that I had gestational diabetes. I was really shocked because I was healthy in my previous pregnancies. When my doctor recommended Droobi, I thought I will give it a try. My health coach was super reactive and very helpful. She supported me in tracking my blood sugars and make the right food choices every single day. The program helped me overcome my fear and have a healthy delivery and baby. I am still using it even after giving birth.

Prevention program

​I have heard about Droobi online and I decided to give its Prevention Program a try, given that diabetes runs in my family. It’s a very easy program, small steps made me lose weight, exercise more, and reduce the risk of getting chronic disease. Great simple app that offers the support, through reminders, tracking tools, lessons and professional coaches. I’ve been using it over a year and I would recommend it to anyone.
