10 Questions for Your Kids When They’re Bored

10 questions for you to have your kids ask themselves when they are bored. #parenting #books #ideas

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.

See the complete list over at The Pennington Point.

 

Lisa Pennington lives in the Texas Hill Country with her husband of 27 years and their 9 children. She homeschools while trying to figure out how to run their little farm with no real knowledge of how to care for goats or grow a garden, turning her life into a comedy of errors. When she has a few extra minutes, she loves to help other women find their identity in Christ and have the courage to live their calling. She blogs about her family life at The Pennington Point, and runs an etsy shop with her daughters, Shop 24, . When people ask how she does it all she replies, “I’m not sure, but I know I need a nap!” You can follow her on Twitter and Instagram @PenningtonPoint.
