Christmas is over and school is back in session. In this episode Marishu give parents ideas on how to beat the January Blues and deal with your child’s boredom.
How many times have you heard your child say, “I’m bored, there is nothing to do!” This sentiment has become more prevalent with the amount of technology that is available to children. Technology creates instant gratification with someone else creating the fun. It is important to understand that technology time must be monitored as it can overstimulate a child very easily.
Using their own creativity and imagination is the key to overcoming boredom.
Playing outside, going for a walk or a bike ride, playing hide and seek, or even having a dance party are several suggestions to stimulate self play and imagination. Try being a kid again by playing with them. Build a fort or play cards which is a great way to beat boredom and get connected with your kids.
