With 9 kids, I have heard many versions of “Mom, I’m bored,” and, “I don’t have anything to do.” I usually send them outside with orders to, “Run around and have FUN!”. But the cold weather (or here in Texas it can also be the summer heat) can keep us inside and not sure what to do with ourselves.
Instead of sending them to play video games or dishing out work for your kids, I keep a list posted in the house for the kids to reference when they have nothing to do.
10 things to ask yourself before you tell Mom you’re bored.
