The times spent ‘doing nothing’ at home are just as valuable as the times spent doing stuff outside of the home. Children (and adults) need time to daydream, to process what they have done over the past few days, to let things sink in, and just to ‘be’ without any pressure to be constantly doing something. Don’t feel guilty for the quiet times at home - enjoy them!
We have probably 2 or 3 days out a week - which is trips into town, visiting friends, or just a walk round the lake near to our house or to the local park (which is a 20 min walk away), so not big ‘days out’ as such and I find that my son, who has just turned 6, needs a couple of quiet days every week or he just gets exhausted. If you’re tired from all the being out all the time, your children probably are too, so just chill a bit. Home is where the heart is! xxx
