Parents’ Day was yesterday and I was blown away when I saw my son, during a bit of free time, take out a toy at his kindergarten, play with it and then put it away when he was done. Because he is pretty good about that.

So I must be doing something wrong at home. I tend not to yell unless he is in immediate danger, but somehow I am not getting into his head that he should pick up his stuff because he tends not to. If I start doing it and ask him to join in, he may help a little bit or there may be days like today where he straight up refuses to. It is a frustrating thing, but my options feel limited.
