Is it just normal for children to be careless and break things durning play? Am I over reacting? Should I just be chalking it up to a kid thing and buy new things every week/ day?
Everything they play with or touch ends up broken, often the same day they got it. I tried teaching them, I tried taking everything away, I tried everything and nothing works.
I feel so sorry for them. Isn't it a right for a child to have things to play with? They are so bored because they broke everything. I felt sorry for them today. It's raining, they were bored and wanting to color. Children need to color. I gave them new markers and crayons as well as some coloring books. There wasn't anything I could do. They ruined them. Markers are swished flat, caps chewed. Crayons broken and destroyed. Coloring books ripped.
Is it just me???
The kids are 2, 5, 7 and 12

Most kids do not do what you said your kids do. Mine did not do it. Because if they did do it what they broke went in the trash and they never got that again. Next time they are bored. Make them clean the house. They will stop being bored.
