Re: How Do I Get DD To Put Her Toys Away?

I don't think it's too early. My friend started the clean up song at birth while she would pick up his toys. When I first went to their house, he was about 14months or so, I can't remember, but he's younger than my girl by a couple months and when she started singing, he starting cleaning up.

I was a little jealous.

anyways, at 20months, I have to be very specific.. it's time consuming. 'Pick up your bear', 'put bear in the bed', etc. and even then the bear ended up on mom's bed

and she loses interest quickly, but it's a process. So, I think you just start it however you're going to do it, be consistent and she'll learn. Think of it like potty training.. it'll be tiring at first, but wonderful once it works
