A few months ago We ‘Devolped’ a new rule in our home. So every Sunday….I go though the kids’ rooms and pick up any toys (Or anything really) that is out of place. I put everything in a closet called the ‘Toy Closet’ and the kids must do extra chores to earn their stuff back. So a few posts back I talked about our ‘point’ thing we do in our house, right? So Thats how the kids get their stuff back. The extra chores they do earns them points, and they use their points to buy their stuff back.
Our closet does have a lock and a key on it(Mostly because my3 year old hasn’t really devoped honesty like my other kids), but if your kids have honesty, you should be fine without one.
So the kids have all week to keep their rooms clean, if they are dirty I pick up their stuff. They cannot clean it up on Sunday though 😛
