The Secret to Clean-Up Time

Sometimes it feels that kids don’t want to clean up.

You tell them fifty times to put away their blocks and they still don’t do it.

It feels like they are being defiant, but what I’ve found in my practice, both in-person and online, is that small beings often simply don’t know how to clean up.

The fact is, what is logical to you, is not always logical to a small being. You might instinctively know where to start, but often they’re sitting there doing nothing because they’re baffled!

Don’t believe me? Hear it from a small being, the Behavior + Beyond resident actress.

Insight Into Action!

Parents: When will you commit to teaching your kid the right way to clean up?

Teachers: How can you make clean up a part of your daily lesson plan and/or classroom routine?
