Here’s a Quick Way to Deal With a Bored Kid

Just wanted to share this post...

We’ve hit a new phase in the last few weeks:

“Mom, I’m bored.”

Previous phases included “I know that” and “I don’t care,” which we dealt with by redirecting Abby to say “I know” (in a non-know-it-all tone) and “That’s okay,” respectively.

So at first, I thought we could handle “I’m bored” the same way. I asked her to try this instead: “Mom, can you help me find something to do?”

But it turns out when you’re in the middle of loading the dishwasher or cranking out a really good Pinterest session, it’s super hard to switch gears and come up with something fun for your kid to do.
