Parents Canada - - Up Front -

I have a harder time than my kids! I let them keep any­thing that means some­thing to them, even if it seems silly to me. There’s al­ways space some­where for trea­sures. – MARG

I ex­plain to my kids that there is an­other child out there that could re­ally use that cer­tain ob­ject and that giv­ing is good. – CAR­MEN

My son has autism, so any change is dif­fi­cult. He will en­joy a theme or item for a few weeks, lose in­ter­est but pick it up again within four months. If the four months pass and he does not re­turn to the item, we then do­nate. – Katie
