👉🏻The thing is to keep cleaning up on the go.
👉Keep loose parts in boxes sealed with lids
👉 When child comes to you open it, say – you have to clean up
👉 and as soon as you see some toys lying vacant not being played with, clear up, include the child in cleaning up.
👉 hand over books to place in the book shelf or the desk
👉 keep big toys in their place.
👉 Pause their play by asking for help, if they dont respond, you do and keep sharing what all you are doing so they hear that this is the way to play with toys
👉 repeated practice will make them understand to not make a mess.
👉 and to clean up any messes
👉 If baby does not follow, then call for a hug and lots of kisses. Then resume cleaning up. Sing happily, dance and do. Baby will follow once the pressure fizzes out.👍🏻
👉 Pressure to perform breaks kids. It does not motivate them. It’s not a gentle parenting approach. 🙏
