What do you do when your kid gets bored? Do you play with him/her all the time? Do you let him watch tv? Any suggestions will help.

Hello, I have 4 kids, and my oldest is turning 20, so he has his own entertainment. but my other 3 2 boys 13 and 15 and my daughter who is 9 going on 10, they are always bored, no matter what it is. so we started going to the park on a daily basis, even if it's for 1 1/2 hours, it helps and it gets them to be able to run their energy out. I have bought them bikes and skateboards and I even bought a bike for myself and we go and just ride around the running path and we play on the gym and play tennis and just letting them run around helps. they are tired and sleep better through the night. if we miss any days during the week, I make it up by going on the weekend. we get our snacks and go sit and talk a little and then we go do our fun time. running, playing tennis, tossing the football around, flying kits if it's windy. whatever it keeps them busy and having fun. we go to different parks that are close by so they don't always have the same surroundings, and I say I enjoy it also. it gives us mommy and kid time. and that they love. Hope this helps:) Bizmom24
