Hi, I've had the most stressful day with my kids. I have two boys DS1 almost 4 and DS2 almost 2. I find that when we are home the absolutely can't play on their own. I have so much to do at the moment and I can't sit down and do my work without them climbing all over me. I sit on the couch and have lunch and they are all over me. We have spent a lot of the day outside but they can't even be out there without me. We went to the park for 2 hrs and while they did play there, as soon as we got home, they are all over me whining and carrying on. I play with them but as soon as I leave the room they are at my feet again.
How on earth can I encourage them to play on their own? I just need some breathing space and I know it comes with the territory of being a SAHM, I'm just not coping with the intensity of their dependency on me.
