I keep bumping into this sign on Facebook and Pinterest these days.
Could it be that moms are preparing themselves for that dreaded whine “I’m booooooooored!!!” this summer?
I happen to be one of those mean moms who believes kids have a right to be bored, and that the feeling of having “nothing to do” and being “bored out of your mind” often precedes the best kinds of creative play. Bring on the boredom!
Some semblance of a summer schedule will probably be essential to my sanity this summertime, but I plan to also leave room for some good old fashioned “boredom” and free play, for myself and for the kids. How about you? How do you handle the “I’m bored!” complaint and what does summer look like in your house?
