Update on the toys

If you have been reading my posts then this will make sense! LOL! If not... go back and read them ;)
Several people have asked about the toy thing and how it is going. I was hesitant to post because I am not sure if the changes are due to coincidence or in direct relation to the toys being gone. But here is what we have noticed so far.
1. They are being more sisterly to each other. More concerned for each other and just sweeter in general.
2. The siblings fights have reduced by at least 50%.
3. They have been happier with the toy they choose and their play is more imaginative/more involved.
4. Clean up is quicker, easier and happier for them!

I think that is about it, but I am hoping it is because of what we did. They loved helping with it. My friend said she may try it and I am hoping she notices the same trends!

What a blessing! I think the fact that you didn't treat it as a punishment, and that they still get to play with their things ... just only one per day ... probably helped a LOT to give them a desire to enjoy the experiment.

I'm so glad it's working for you!!! Looking forward to seeing up close & personal. :)
