Raising uncluttered kids- Part 2

Bec and Tara share stories about their own kids as well as things they've learned when working with other families. You'll learn a couple of techniques for managing kids artwork, what to do when you have a kid that collects rocks and how to deal with the nag factor.

Show notes:

  • Set limits and boundaries for keeping items.

  • Declutter with your children not for them” Bec

  • “They need to see us part with something that no longer serves us and see that we’re okay about it.” Tara

  • "The ability to rationally evaluate all of your belongings and curate them is a skill that needs to be taught." Bec

  • Concept: ‘Give before you get’. Kids find some things to let go of before birthdays and Christmas and the influx of more.

  • “Decluttering is not a skill you’re born with. It’s something you have the to learn” – Bec

  • “I wanted to plant the seed that when you give something to someone, it’s theirs to do with what they like. “ Tara

  • Photograph your childrens artwork and save the photo, discard the original 

  • Turn your children's artwork into coffee table books- Jimmy Halfpenny   Plum Print

  • “Sometimes I think you just need to reframe how they keep their things and where they keep them, so that they don’t encroach on other spaces in the house.” Tara

  • “Set expectations. Sooner or later, they’ll stop asking for things because their expectations are set.” Bec
