Do you think kids today expect to be entertained more than they did in years past?
My 6 year old grandson is here. He was moping because he’s bored. I’m not going to let him watch TV until later, and I’m using the computer. I don’t really want him losing himself in Candy Crush all day or movies. It’s a BEAUTIFUL day. I do feel sorry that there is no one here for him to play with but that’s just the way it is.
So, he’s telling me he’s bored. I said, “Well, go find something to do!”
Then I got to thinking…I don’t think I ever told my folks I was bored. If I had I can only imagine that they’d look at me in astonishment and say, “Why are you telling me this? Go find something to do!” I don’t think I ever, ever expected my parents to take care of it because I was bored.
