How do you slim down a surplus of playthings when your child doesn't want to let any of them go? It's a common question for moms with young children.
Circle of Moms member LiAnne P., for example, says it's time for Spring-cleaning, but her children are really attached to their old toys. "Is there a way to make it easier on them?" she asks the Circle of Moms community.
Similarly, Paulette R. says every room in her home is "jam-packed with crates of toys." As her family gets ready to move to a new house, she knows they need to de-clutter, but her sons get upset when she tries to pare down. "I have tried on many occasions to get rid of things, and they become hysterical," she shares. "Hence the reason why I have never been able to bring myself to throw anything way since they were babies . . . they have both been having meltdowns this morning for the last two hours."
If you, too, are finding your children have formed strong attachments to their toys, here are eight tips from Circle of Moms members on how to make saying goodbye easier.
