Summer vacation has started and a lot of parents are already dreading their children throwing 'I am getting bored' remark at them. To keep their children entertained and engaged, parents hurriedly enrol them in a slew of classes and courses. However, the question is is boredom really that bad for your child? A lot of parents will agree that in this day and age, a lot of equity is being placed on being productive at all times. To ensure that your child knows how to spend few hours by themselves without complaining, we need to normalise our children feeling bored.
It's only when they feel bored and at a loose end, they will be able to think of different things, reflect over things and perhaps try their hand at new things out of their own volition. Read below some of the reasons that suggest it's okay to let your child feel bored.

It sparks creativity in your child

When a child feels bored, that’s when they feel compelled to try new things and explore all things they like. This is when they can truly get a chance to be creative and experiment where their interest lies. It is possible that your child may pick up paint brushes and try their hand at some art form. So, boredom is not necessarily a bad thing.

They will be prompted to find a solution

When a child feels bored, they will naturally look for solutions to pass time. This will in a way encourage them to develop a problem-solving attitude.

Encourages child to be independent

Parents should not immediately come to the rescue of children when they complain about feeling bored. Every child should be allowed time to figure out a way to deal with boredom. This will encourage a child to be independent in a way and not depend on someone to keep them busy or preoccupied with something.

Boosts child’s imagination

A child is always busy with either homework, running and playing around. It is when a child is at a loose end, they start thinking of different things. Be it thinking about a situation, an incident that happened at school or how to go about doing holiday homework - all these things make a child imagine. This is a healthy thing and must be encouraged.

They can find bliss in nothing

We are living in a day and age where too much equity is placed on being productive. A lot of you will agree that it is important to have free time and spare hours where you have absolutely nothing to do. This is why it’s a good idea when children feel bored and have nothing on their plate. This is how they will learn how to spend time without doing anything and it’s really an art.
