And no matter how hard we try as parents to provide some answers or pack a schedule full of adventurous activities to keep our kids busy, that phrase will still rear its ugly head.
So, what suggestions do you offer your kids that work? I honestly don’t know how to answer that question anymore. I am never bored…there’s too much to do!
Let’s pour our writing into some responses that will knock our kids’ socks off when they ask us next time! You could write silly one-line responses or expand to an entire list of ideas. Please use the comment section as the first part of our task this week! I hope it benefits all of us!
Here’s my idea contribution to our collection:
Kids: Mom, we’re bored.
Me: Here, read this pile of books! I’m Bored by Michael Ian Black, I’m Bored! By Christine Schneider, The I’m So Bored Doodle Notebook by Susan McBride
As you can see, there are already stories out there about boredom, but how can you swing this into a story theme to create something new? Happy writing with Task #2!
