I am not looking forward to the kids being out of school for the next 2 weeks for CHRISTmas break. The reason for this is because they mope around the house saying, " I'm bored. There's nothing to do."
When I was a kid, I found things to do. I lived in Florida, so I was always able to go outside. Now I live in Kentucky and it's cold outside, but during the winter months my kids have always asked to go outside and play in the creak that's full of ice or if there is snow on the ground, to play in the snow.
I try to keep them busy by playing board games with them, but there is always someone who doesn't want to play. I say we are going to the library and there is always someone who doesn't want to go.
They always want to be on the PC and I have a 2 hour limit. Even the TV news people tell you to monitor your kids on the PC and it is not a good idea to let them be on it for more than 2 hours a day. If none of that works then I find them in their room watching tv, movies, or playing games.
What is a person to do with 3 teenagers home from school for 2 weeks?
