So tonight I lost it. My kids love Lego they play with it every day, often several times a day. I asked them I lost count of how many times to pack it up tonight (when in started to think about and make tea) 2 hours later I was still asking them and they hadn't put any of it away. I lost it and took all their toys away and put them into a room they don't have access to.
I feel like a monster. I was tired and sick of cleaning up after them and always asking them to help me pack up and getting little to no help, and being ignored. Not that I am trying to make excuses. I have been in tears since they went to bed (so if you want to say something horrible to me believe me it's not something I haven't already said to myself) I don't know how to give them back their toys without losing any kind of authority I have (actually I don't feel like I have any anyway).
Maybe they don't need all their toys back, maybe they are to spoilt, I just don't know what to do.
How do I give them back their toys? They are 4 and 3x 2 (I know I am asking to much and I feel horrible for how I reacted)
