Alright parents, I’ve got a question for you. Now think about this one long and hard… Do your kids know how to be bored? Seriously. Don’t answer me yet. Think about it. Do your kids know how to be truly BORED?
A week or so ago we were running behind on our way to summer camp and realized as we were backing out of the driveway that Jack had left his iPad in the house. We didn’t have time to go back and get it, so there was an instant sigh from the back seat followed by, “What am I going to do on the way to day camp?” Now, despite the fact that we are just 10 tiny minutes from camp, my sweet boy was flustered. I realized at that minute that my kid has no idea how to be bored.
