The article “I’m bored! What Your Child Is Really Telling You” by Linda Morgan, is an argumentative article that provides explanations about why a child would say they are “bored!” and what they really mean when they say it. The targeted readers are parents who have this issue. Based on this article, the author is a parent who has this issue with her child. The author is constrained by the belief that when a child says he is bored, the parents are suppose to find something interesting to tell them, try to understand what they really mean when they say it, and help their children and sit down with them and ask them what they want, not just tell them to go find something else to do. The exigence is parents not understanding their children when they say they are bored and ignoring it.
The author is taking a position against the parent who ignore what their children say to them, and the parents who don’t understand the needs of their kids. He says that when a child says that he is bored at school that can mean that his class isn’t challenging enough for him, or it can mean that he is lost and doesn’t understand what he is supposed to do in school. When your kid keeps on saying that school is boring it can be part of a pattern of negative thinking.
I’m taking the position of supporting the author, because when you ignore what your child is trying to tell you, then that can lead to being distant of your child. When you actually engage with your child and try to help him and understand what he want, that would get you closer to him. It would also help your child understand that there is someone who pays attention to him and can help him.
