Does anyone else’s children not want to do anything ever?! I’m always reading on MN that people take their children out every day but mine don’t want to go out. They are 8,7 and 5 (also have a 2 year old but she doesn’t mind) I bought a lot of picnic food to go to the park with them today but none of them want to go. We’ve hardly done anything during the holiday. Aibu to wonder if any one else’s children are like this?

I think it's okay if they're not just watching TV or playing games all day long. But have you tried asking them what they'd like to do in advanced? We started doing family meetings once every couple of weeks just after dinner and it's really helped them communicate with us.
