Kids need to get bored…. good things come from boredom. Brendan finds it particularly hard not to have something stimulating him. He has always been the same and I believe it is part of his Autism. I do try very hard to try and teach him that he does not need to be doing all the time and that it is good to just “relax and be” sometimes.
I am fighting a bit of a battle though when we live in a world of tv, tech and on tap stimulation.
I am slowly making progress though. He reads more and spends more time outside (although only if I am out with him too) and I am seeing him slowly developing the ability to find his own entertainment.
Sometimes it is climbing a tree or making up a game but today it was photography!
Here are a selection of some of his Arty shots!
