How old is your child? I never seem to have enough time to do everything I want to do with the kids during school holidays. Not to say that I don't look forward to my me time once school starts, just that one week is very short.

Does he have indoor hobbies? If so, you can alternate two full day outing with quiet indoor activities. Throw in two movies/ dvds, a set of new books, a new skill, the week is already over.

My child is already 7 years old, so it's not so difficult to keep him entertained. It used to be much worse during his kindergarten days, before he could read independently. So ya now his indoor activities are reading. And helping with housework. Or playing with Lego, sometimes board games with me. We try to minimize screen time to preserve his eyesight. Seems like at each eye check his eyesight getting progressively worse...

The thing is, during term time he spends 6 hours in school. When it's hols, there's literally 6 hours of extra time to fill. He does not, cannot and will not sleep in. That's why we usually go outdoors and hang out outside to kill time. I am an indoor person myself, but I think boys aren't made like girls who like crafting and drawing for hours on end. His cabin fever can really drive me up the wall. Sigh...at least these are the final 2 days of the Sept hols...ya weekends are also whole burden on me when spouse is not around...

I would have difficulties handling very outdoor kids also :sweat: mine may have been 'trained' to be quite indoor person. I had learned not to promised any outings too early..sweat arh. now, I will put my clause let see then ok, not a promise :lol: dd1 favourite place is library/bookshops that have books for her to read..I m depriving her now as she doesn't have much time to study. she has not been at home most of this holiday. at home, just walking around, talk here and there, doing some stuff here and there, eating, reading whatever story books/mag we have at home, ..that's it will be one day gone. if have one hour studying (SA2 near already hor), I will be happy. Give me 24hours more a day, I will be happiest.

So it is just the morning hours? You need to sleep in and have a slow start but he is raring to go? Six hours is not a lot to fill if you plan ahead. The activities you mentioned are varied and plentiful, so I am not sure why it is still a problem. But if you are thinking - that is six less hours for myself - then yes, it is six less hours of uninterrupted time for yourself, there is no way around it when they are this young. If going out early is very hard for you, then just tell him so. Find a compromise, and schedule going out time with him ahead so that you both know what to expect.

I think Friday is also a school holiday... :wink:
