    This reminds me of my Gran. When I was 8 years old I complained of boredom. Gran replied, oh really, dear, I can take care of that for you. She handed me a basket of my white school socks to darn and sat over me while I did them. Took me absolute ages to finish one and it wasn’t very well done either. Never again did I say I was bored! We lived in a flat [apartment] too, so playing noisy games was out of the question. That was way back in 1952 and my Gran didn’t believe in child psychology. The back of the hairbrush was her psychology. I survived though as many of us did in those days.

    yep, if we said we were bored in the summer my mom had a solution to that, and a huge pile of handkerchiefs that needed to be ironed.

    I grew up in the 50’s and we had to lay down and rest every afternoon because of the polio scare so we would find something to do outside in the shade just to keep from taking a nap. Now I would kill for a nap every day. lol

    Boredom is actually laziness. Gram is right, there is a million things to do.
