Home All Day with a Preschooler? How to Make it Through the Day.

 

wp_20130204_001Before my second child was born, I used to feel sad that my eldest didn’t have a sibling to play with. I don’t remember finding it particularly difficult to find things to fill our days though. I didn’t have one child at home for another seven years, this time the experience was very different. As the youngest child, my daughter had never spent any time without her sisters. She is a very easy going child but suddenly seemed at a loss. She wanted to know what we were doing and constantly asked me to play games with her, unless I put the television on (and then I felt guilty).  This was a new experience for me and it took me a while to navigate.  If you are in a similar situation, you may find some of these strategies helpful.
