We all know the children's chant...It's raining, it's pouring, everything is boring...what?  You are thinking that is not the way it goes and yet we all have had children pull the "I'm bored" card on us.  I am sure you have responded with "I can give you a chore" or perhaps you did the "With a room full of toys, how can you tell me you have nothing to do?"  One rainy day when my granddaughter said she was bored, I sat on the couch and said "let's be bored together."  At first she didn't know how to respond but was up for the game.  We got on the couch and looked at each other and said "now what?"  The "what" that came out of our being bored together was a 45 minute talk about everything and nothing at all.  Her "I'm bored"  was really just a request of "Nana to spend some time with me."  The next time your child/grandchild says "I'm bored" take a minute before you hand out a pat answer and talk to your little person.  "It's raining, we're sharing, thank you for caring" can be a new version for an old sing song...think about it!  Please visit me @ http://www.whimsicalwordspublishing.com
