Listen as we share some tactics on how we battle summertime boredom:

  • Create a summer bucket list.
  • Start a Bored Jar
  • Boredom is a GOOD thing for kids.
  • Quiet time is encouraged in our houses.
  • Giving ourselves permission to not be engaged ALL the time.
  • How we balance “all the things” (hint: we don’t!)
