Quoting Fertile Mertile + D & C:" If she doesn't care about them, I would take away something she cares more about, so she will change ... [snip!] ... He is still young, but if he acts up in preschool or something when he starts, I will probably take away tv and video games."
Quoting momma snell:" She enjoys cartoons. I really think that by telling her, "No cartoons until you earn your toys back" ... [snip!] ... to pick toys to give to other kids. They are all gone now, and she's been made known how she can earn them back. We'll see. "
Quoting Fertile Mertile + D & C:" Yeah sounds like it will work. Good luck! I'm not looking forward to those days, uggh. Btw what age ... [snip!] ... is good for starting them with chores? My son will be 3 in a few weeks, but I want to start giving him simple things to do."My 19 month old has to help when we do chores. I give him a rag and he "cleans" little things (the table, he'll wipe the door...whatever it is, as long as he thinks he's helping.) At 3 I had simple chores for her, she picked 1 every morning. And then at night had to have all toys cleaned up.

Quoting Nietzsche:" I think part of it is just the age. My now 5 year old went thru it too. This is when I started giving ... [snip!] ... helped. It also has the side benefit of learning how to save for things he wants and also how to count money. Good luck. "She gets money at the end of the week for her chores (not much, but she doesn't know that.) She has to put a little in her save account, a little in her spend account, and a little in her give account.
Quoting .Colleen.:" I agree with the other moms, you need to find something she truly loves and use that I once ... [snip!] ... through. Because I am as stubborn as she and would have stayed up the entire night just to ensure I did it "So....
Quoting Coupon Lady:" I say good luck....she sounds like my daughter. She started the whole not caring and said the exact samething ... [snip!] ... has daily chores she gets b paid for lol But ya I say good luck and hope it works better fir your daughter then mine lol"
Quoting momma snell:" So.... If she doesn't ever try to earn her toys back (they are ALL gone. She has ZERO in her room.) She has a bed, and a lamp. Then I should take away her books, library trips, and preschool time? "
Quoting ♀NoBoysAllowed:" I wouldn't take educational experiences away. I really get how you feel, and sometimes there's just ... [snip!] ... try your nerves, but it gets better eventually. All I can really say from my own experience is to stick it out until she gives."
