Children and boredom

 
Children and boredom

Let them get bored!

A child who concentrates well needs empty periods. By doing nothing and daydreaming, children develop their imagination, attention span and ability to listen to their own thoughts. This is crucially important: to be able to think, you need to have an empty mind!

If children are always occupied, they miss out on the opportunity to reflect.
