I’m sure I’m not the only parent who hears this on a daily basis.
I fear it so much that I pack out the days to ensure that I don’t fail my son by allowing him to become bored or disengaged.
If we aren’t at home getting stuck into games, baking, stacking, sticking or painting then we are at a Tumble Tots, Rhyme Time or seeing friends at soft play.
If we are at home then I ensure we have stimulating, creative and educational activities to fill the time. If all else fails, then I call on an electronic distraction such as CBeebies – or better yet, the iPad.
