I thought it was me. My kids were always telling me they were bored, nothing I did made them happy. I thought maybe they were in the house too much.
This weekend they went to the zoo, seen the animals and then took them to the splash ground at the zoo. (water play area) They got to play at the park, a really nice one with swings, slides, monkey bars, etc, etc. We had a picnic and ate outdoors. When we got home they played in the yard and on the computer some.
They had a very busy day.
Although we did have a lot of fun and over all the day was enjoyable, they still complained of being bored. They still complained and whined about every little thing. Something was always wrong according to them.
Is this just kids? What gives? I thought they'd have fun and wouldn't have time to complain. What makes them so unhappy that they feel that they have to nit-pic everything and complain about it? Even simple things like a sandwich "could be better"
I can't make them happy. Now what? Why is everything "wrong" and they are always bored? I'm begining to wonder if it's not me. (or maybe it is in a different way? don't know)

I agree with YerMami, I have an 11 yr,old and 16 yr, old and they do the same thing! I think they have too much to do unlike when we were kids and you went outside and played with the neighbor kids until dark! Kids are just different now and i think it has a lot to do with electronics ... computers, game systems etc... Kids don't need entertained all the time, they need to find ways to entertain themselves!
