    Default Boredom Good For Kids

    Anyone else seen this?

    http://m.essentialkids.com.au/entert...417-2hza8.html

    I think there needs to be a balance and I do think that some parents are far too obsessed with giving their kids their full attention 100% of the time... but thats just my view. I was brought up having time on my own (and yes I remember being bored) and it certainly didn't do me any harm. And I have a fantastic relationship with my parents.

    Different strokes for different folks I am sure. I am probably what some would call a free range parent

    I'll read it now.
    We are all bored ATM sitting in the lounge room. No tv on, a few toys. Ds is playing with a naked Barbie on the bean bag!

    Just read it, yep I agree with it!

    Ds is 3.5 and has a great imagination. We do a mix of 1 on 1 play and lots of other times he'll ponder around looking for things to do (like now) and I believe that sparks his imagination.

    Totally agree. We don't have a abundance of toys . I let my 11 month wander around back yard playing with whatever . Kids don't need to be overstimulated all the time.
