I will share with you, my personal story. The kids were watching TV on a lazy Saturday afternoon. I wanted them to do something worthwhile with their time. So I started my boring advice, within a second I could hear all the words which I used to tell them, were being repeated in unison back to me. The funny thing was that they were both still talking with their eyes glued to the television. I felt like a fool.
So you see I have got a problem here. So what did I do? I gave them some waste materials which I found were unique and some paint. The results were stunning.
Hope you got my point? Being creative can help you in a zillion ways.
