Today’s Parenting Tip:
This Parenting Tip is a reminder about things you can do to help your child get a good start at school this year.
Three things your child could do to turn-off boredom:
- Create a “Boredom Box” – toys, books, or activities that are just for times when he feels bored.
- Make up jingles or songs about the boring situation he is in – like, “Johnny Jimbo went to town riding on his (bikey or desko). He stuck a (stick or pear) in his shirt and said it was his (lunchee or phono).
- Tell his teacher what he is interested in and ask if he could read about, write about, or do math about that. You could help him have that conversation with a teacher.
