Hoda Kotb came up with a solution to boredom for her children and now she’s sharing her hysterically ingenious method with the rest of us!
A Silly Solution To Boredom
Parenthood is one of life's biggest blessings. Children add so much joy, happiness and fun to life. Whether through birth or adoption, welcoming a child into the home is one way to show the love of Christ to someone else.
However, as much as parents might want to engage and interact with their children, it may not be possible to do so and keep them constantly entertained. When children believe they've run out of things to do, they will state they are bored.
Well, Hoda Kotb found a way to keep her kids from ever getting to that point. And her hilarious solution to boredom involves using Amazon's Alexa during the winter season.
"I asked Alexa, every 15 minutes, to sound an alarm," she said, through laughter.
She explains that she devised a game to keep her children active.
"And the kids are barefoot, and it's cold outside," Hoda said. "So I said, ‘We're all going to do it.' Every 15 minutes we're going to go outside. We're going to run outside, tag this pole and come back."
Kids Love A Funny Game
Hoda, through laughter, said her game received a surprisingly positive reception from her youngsters.
"The kids were delighted," Hoda said.
As much fun as Hoda's solution to boredom was, she and Jenna agreed that sometimes kids, who go through a semester of school and are over-scheduled with tests and classes, deserve time to lay around and relax.
Kids deserve time to themselves. They don't want to be doing something every minute of every day. It's OK for kids to be kids at times.
But saying "I'm bored" to the wrong person could result in playing a game where one runs outside barefoot in the middle of winter, as Hoda hilariously explains.
Proverbs 22:6 "If a child is trained up in the right way, even when he is old he will not be turned away from it."
