I’ve read articles that say that boredom is good for kids. And I agree — being constantly entertained is not realistic or even fun. When our kids have chill time on their own, they often fall into a zone that’s happy and engaged. But sometimes they still can’t quite get there and seem restless and end up saying, “Mom, can I have your phone?” or “I’m huuuuuuuuungry.”
I often wonder if I’m getting it right as a parent — should we live in an apartment instead of our farm house so they would have friends around? do I work too much? — but at times, when the kids are totally engaged outside, it feels just right.
