Miles is forced to play outside lately


The boys had a whole week off of school, so they are getting restless, and my house is a mess because they are in everything and I can't clean as well when they are under-foot. So I make Miles and Miyo go outside too. I say to Miles that he needs to get dressed in warm clothes and I send him out in the back yard. Murphy and Miyo want to be outside all day, and Miles used to too. Now he is into video games and can't be bothered with anything else. So I tell him that his TV and video time are going to be only an hour a day, and he can choose which one, or how much time with each (this isn't as easy for me to do, because it's really easy to let the TV take care of him all day). So he has been complaining and coming in every ten minutes and saying, "Now can I come in?" So yesterday I finally said to him, "You can come in and clean your room, or stay outside and play." So he stayed out longer of course. Well this morning he helped me clean his room, and then I had them all go outside and I swept and mopped the floors while they were outside. After a while Miles came in and said, "If I clean my room, can I come in?" And I told him he already cleaned it so that must mean he has to stay outside and play.

The picture is him jumping out of one of the trees in the backyard into a huge pile of leaves.

You should build him a tree house. Then he would want to play outside.

the last comment is not in anyway supported or recommended by Cory. If you are confused try dialing LAWYERS. That's L-A-W-Y-E-R-S. Sound answers and "something" advice.
