Re: How do you help kids purge without the meltdown tears?
My oldest is 6. We used to have this problem with her freaking out when I tell her she needs to get rid of stuff to make room for "new" stuff. I don't have this problem anymore. I talk to her about kids who do not have toys. She is rly easy going and it was such an easy talk with her. I showed her Salvation Army and what they do, and she was so willing to help, she was getting rid of things *I* was telling her to keep! LOL. She even helps me unload the car when we drop off at the donation center.
