What is the strangest thing you have suggested to a bored child?

I am sick and not really feeling like going out, and my son is complaining he is bored. He did not like any of my suggestions on what to do, so I finally said, "why don't you go stand on your head?" I was kidding of course, but he is now in the hallway standing on his head. He thinks it is fun. What do you tell your kids to do when they are bored and don't like any of your suggestions?

I think we really can't simply joke with our children, especially when they are still young, otherwise they will really consider our suggestions, and thought it's real. Well, I seldom suggest any things to a child, as the children I meet always can find things to do by themselves. It's actually them who come and approach me to play with them.

Hi kaka: It's just nice when a kid approuch to you and want to play with you. The best part of this is that, in that moment parent's are like their heroes and they're more receptive to a display of affection of their parents. So it's better to enjoy these times with yours. Thanks for your answer kaka. Hope you are having a nice day. Merry Christmas/ Happy holidays. Take Care. -Alvaro

Hi lilybug: I have asked my little sister to run around all the house like two or three times so that would make her feel tired and stop bother me and she did it. I love this moment of the childhood where we are just innocent. Sometimes is difficult to deal with a little child but they're a God's gift. Thanks for asking me this question. Hope you are having a nice day. Merry Christmas/ Happy holidays. Take Care. -Alvaro
