Embrace Boredom in Childhood

We live in a fast-paced world with an abundance of instant gratification and constant entertainment. Have you ever paused to think about what this is creating in our children? As a result of this, children are faced with less challenges, less opportunities to communicate and no time to use their imaginations. 

The next time your child complains of boredom, remember that boredom is good and is needed. It gives children the opportunity to develop planning strategies, be flexible and problem solve. Boredom allows children to self reflect and use their imagination. More boredom can help your child develop into interesting, thoughtful people who can endure having to wait for things like long lines and car rides. 

So, next time you are tempted to entertain your child or put a screen in front of them, remember that boredom can actually foster much more.
