Soccer, baseball, swimming, lacrosse... have you been sitting on the sidelines of your kid's activities lately? We don't do it nearly as much as other families, but enough to realize the dilemma of the bored child who is NOT participating. Oftentimes, it's the younger siblings that are on the sidelines, but in the case of our family, my oldest daughter is finding herself more and more on the sidelines.
While I'm happy that my youngest is discovering activities that she loves, I also understand my oldest not always being eager to come along. It's not always fun to sit on the sidelines. So, what to do?
