KJ has had about 4 days to clean up her room. My Little Pony, Littlest Pet Shop, Care Bears, zoo animals GALORE!!! --all over her room! :( So, today, after hours of telling her to clean her room (and finding her playing instead), I gave her "one last chance". I told her that I was going to go back and check on her and if I caught her playing, instead of cleaning, that I was going to box up all those toys that weren't cleaned up.
Unfortunately, I went back and she was playing -AGAIN! :( I boxed them all up. The only thing that was cleaned up, that she has left to play with, is all her Build-A-Bear stuff and her coloring books and art stuff. I can't imagine that those items would make too much of a mess but I told her that if her room became messy again that I would box those items up too.
Have you ever done this? Does it work? How do you get your little one to keep a clean room? Chris thinks she just has access to way too many toys at once . . . maybe he's right. :( Any suggestions? Please and thank you.
