M is 10. M does not play by himself. If he isn't allowed outside the answer is to pester me into oblivion. I spent all morning playing and then watching some silly monster movie on syfy. Now, I want to do my nails and it's "mom, what do you want to do with me? Mom, what can I do? Mom, let's just leave now. Mom, I've decided I want to go to the diner. Mom, mom, mom, mom, mom...."
GO PLAY BY YOURSELF! You are 10 years old! You've been an only child for 10 bloody years and you can't play by yourself?!?
Anyone have any ideas on how to get this kid to play alone?
