Emotional Well-Being
How can boredom be a positive thing for my child?Boredom is a really great thing for all of us! When we’re bored, we ask, “What can I do?” For young children, this is an opportunity for them to independently explore. They learn to be curious and creative within their environment. This is wonderful for their brains and their bodies too! Ultimately, boredom is better for their development than being overscheduled.
