  • My kids don't complain they are bored because I find stuff for them to do like washing walls, scrubbing the floors, dusting the whole house, pulling weeds, etc. They quickly get unbored.
    I've actually started taking my own advice. When I start feeling bored I go find something to clean up. After about 10 minutes I'm a lot less bored, lol, and seem to be able to settle down and do something else (like read or knit). My kids usually go outside and play with their friends or find something to do in their rooms.
