“I’m bored”, said my son.
Read a book. Draw something. Play a game with your brother. Practice arithmetic. I came up with half a dozen options, all of which he rejected. He wanted to watch TV, and that I didn’t want him to do.
“Fine. In that case, stay bored!”, I told him and walked away.
He sulked for half an hour, then found two old Happy Meals toys and started enacting a play with them.
A cupboard full of toys and a library of books is not enough. Sometimes, you need to ignore your child to teach him self-sufficiency.______
