Dr. Toy responds to the parent with a ten year old girl who constantly complains that there is nothing to do. Dr. Toy suggests that you take your child to the local Public Library and obtain a card. There are many excellent books that will give her endless suggestions for things to do. Gently suggest craft books, cooking or science projects that may be of interest. These activities will benefit her by learning to do new things and will add to her skills.She may also find reading a worthwhile activity by itself.
