Six REAL boredom busters!

boredom busters

Don't you just hate the annual avalanche of articles telling you how to deal with your kids yelling:

'Mommy I'm bored?!'

I suspect they're written by experts, sitting behind their comfy desk, while sipping the cup of coffee their secretary just brought in. They probably thought: 'Ah! It's that time of year again! Let's hash out the same old stuff we did last year. Those moms won't notice!'

So I decided to write my very own list of boredom busters!

Six real boredom busters!

  1. Go the nearest Toys R Us and invest in: a WII, a Nintendo 3DS, an Xbox and a Playstation 3. Because who are we kidding?! Your kids aren't really bored, they just want their screentime. Don't forget to buy some games too, and you won't see your kids for days. Be sure to give them some extra vitamin D, to compensate for the lack of sunlight.
  2. Make sure your kid's problem doesn't become your problem. Say: 'Oh, mommy is so sorry you're bored. That must be so boring for you. How does that make you feel, to be so bored?'
  3. Get there first! Before your kid can open his mouth, moan: 'I'm soo bored. I just don't know whát to do!'
  4. Offer gruesome alternatives: 'Go and clean up your room! And when you've done that you can clean out our garage and give mommy a shoulder rub.'
  5. Let your child give the lawn a 'new haircut'. With child's scissors.
  6. Go all 'House on the prairie' on them, and tell them how you, when you were a child, got by with only a wooden spoon. Don't let them cover their ears to shut out the sound of your voice!

Be sure to lie back and have your kids bring you a nice cup of coffee.
Because after all, you're worth it.

You just busted their boredom!

  1. I always tell my kids that if they are so bored I guess that means they don't need any of their toys anymore because they are too boring for them so I am going to get rid of them. They get unbored very quickly.I am a new follower from the blog hop. Visit my daughter and I at our blog, Says Me Says Mom ( where we talk about anything and everything.

  2. I love the lawn haircut, great idea!!! Very funny post thanks!!! I have been dealing with tween boredom by taking my darling on a morning walk to the beach with me and my dad. I'm so sore I can't belive it, but, I haven't heard I'm bored all week, so it is worth the pain and suffering!!! Lol!!! Have a great weekend!!

  3. LMAO! Brilliant! I am loving the idea of trimming the lawn with kid scissors. I plan to use that next time my 15 year old wants to complain of boredom. I am visiting from #featurefridays of last week for I am never bored when there is a ton of blogging to do! 😀

  4. Ha ha my mom used to do #3 while growing up. We learned quickly never to say "I'm bored" in her hearing or she would announce that she could find us something to do. It was always cleaning!

  5. I'm guilty of #4! Haha! I am definitely trying the trimming the grass with kid scissors. My child has some weird fascination with scissors (I've confiscated 2 from her room already) and will probably trim the grass hair for hours. BTW, thanks for linking up to the Oh My Heartsie Girl Linky party! You are my feature pick 😉
