Inside: Are your kids always bored? Let’s talk about kids these days…and it isn’t about screen time. Here’s an idea you might not have considered.

Summer is here, and the battle with boredom has already begun.  Life these days is hectic as we try to keep up with busy schedules and bucket lists.  So when there is down time, kids aren’t sure how to handle it.
