10 Things That Happened When I Stopped “Entertaining” My Kid

Comments (2)
  1. I really like this! I wrote a post recently about the importance of boredom for kids, and how when I was a kid, I was left to my own devices a lot while my mom was busy in the house. I worry that between the prevalence of devices and parents constantly hovering around their kids, today’s kids are going to grow up without any sense of imagination or independence. When my daughter is bored, I say “go find something to do!” Sounds like your son is doing just that! Thanks for linking up at the Manic Mondays blog hop!

    1. Thank You! Yes, I agree that today’s generation is getting smothered with too many toys, multimedia and over-scheduling of activities, leaving too little time and space for creative play and imaginative thinking. And we, as parents are responsible. So I am just trying to pull myself away a little so that sonny can discover the magic that used to be a quintessential part of our 80s childhood! I did read your post on kids boredom and found it really reverberating my own views on letting the kids getting bored a little. Thank you for that! And it’s always a pleasure to connect to mommyatoz through the blog hops 🙂 Cheers, D
