Looking After Their Things

About This Module

Many children find it overwhelming trying to care for and organise their things. Toys, school books, sports kit, the list goes on. Life can become a constant battle when it comes to your child’s stuff.

So, if you’re frustrated by the way your child looks after their things, forever searching for things they have lost or just wanting to help your child get started on organising themselves, you’re in the right place.

WeParent has designed this module to help you teach your child how to look after their things, take responsibility and get organised.

Our step-by-step, easy to follow strategies are designed by our team of psychologists. Unlimited access to all our strategies is available in your WeParent Membership.

  • Building Pride In Possessions

    This strategy is all about teaching your child to look after their things better. It may be they are constantly breaking their own or other people’s things, forgetting where they put something or leaving things behind at a friends or school.

This is a great strategy to improve this lack of respect for their own and other’s things and teach your child to learn to show respect and have pride in things using the system of Toy Confiscation.

Psychology Fun Facts

  • 1
  • 2
  • Some children seem to care very little about possessions. Whether it’s losing things, never being able to find things or breaking things.

    Children are not naturally organised and often have no idea how to look after things. They need your help to start a system they can follow which helps them know where their things are and be able to find them when they want them.

  • Organisation is a key life skill which, as an adult, we rely on every day. The responsibility of paying bills, doing a job and running a household are all skills which are based of the simple organisational skills we learn during the mid-childhood years.
