Bored

How To Help Children And Youth That Are Bored A Lot Of The Time; Bored At School

Boredom can lead to habits not conducive to learning and success. Although it may be a normal part of growing up, it can be used by the child or youth to express unhappiness. Boredom is an important part of deciding what is interesting. It can be due to a combination of: lack of engaging activities; over-stimulation and being overwhelmed by the number of choices of activities; fear/anxiety; depression/sadness; mental illness; unresolved body tension left from shock and trauma; lack of success and acknowledgement for accomplishments and having curiosity; lack of confidence; fear of making mistakes; perceptual difficulties; lack of suitable stimulation; over-expectations; under-expectations; family patterns of boredom and inactivity; lack of effective communication skills; patterns of avoiding new situations; nervous system challenges; perception challenges; nutritional imbalances; exposure to environmental pollutants. Having things to do that are important to the life of the family and thus feeling connected is important for any child or youth and is helpful in counteracting boredom.
