Re: My almost 6 y/o is writing on EVERYTHING! I am going bonkers

We've gone through this, too. It's no fun. I threw away all the markers, and I made the offenders watch me do it. I made sure they understood that the markers were thrown away because of their lack of self-control. (I have other children, and I simply cannot spend my entire day policing this one child.) I made the child in question clean as much of the writing as possible, although some stuff was just marked forever. We homeschool also, so it isn't possible to throw away every writing utensil in the house, lol. We'd never get any work done. However, I kept everything in a single drawer, and watched that like a hawk. In your case, I think I might invest in something lockable, just to reduce the worry another notch.
