I swear if my 7.5 year old says that one more time I will probably snap. My 6 year old has no problem entertaining herself, but nothing is good enough for my oldest child.
During the late morning we will go somewhere (fountains at the town hall to get wet, movies, bowling, skating rink, etc). It's all "boring" and "babyish". The parks are boring. Her toys are boring or she doesn't have enough to play with (trust me she does). Anything I suggest is "lame". So I tried doing the "If you're bored you can clean the house". That's "not fun".
She just sits and whines and it's gotten on my last nerve.. Nothing is good enough for her.
