That Toy Thing

I believe we are rapidly approaching the 2 week mark of "taking the toys away" and it is STILL going wonderfully! I think I can now safely say that it works. We have girls who fight less, imagine more, help me and each other out more, have more positive attitudes and I do not believe I have had 1 argument involving cleaning up since this started. If you have considered doing this with your kids, I strongly urge you to try it! You can always go back if it does not work for you. I was talking to my friend tonight who is doing it at her house and she is thrilled! She says she is getting more housework done and less fighting and more working together. Try it and let me know!

Wow, I am amazed at your toy success. I do think that less is truly more in many situations, and this seems to be one of them.

Sounds like a great thing. I'll keep it in mind [smile].

...did you post about the specifics of what this entails/how you got started? I don't recall the post if you did and I'd love more info!
