I had a minute today and read the article at the link above, from my mother-in-laws blog. It really hit home for me.
My daughter is sooooooooooooo spoiled! I know it's my fault. Every time we go to the store and she doesn't get something, she gets upset. She has so many things, mostly JUNK! Now she feels like she needs to have it all with her at all times. Even to school, her backpack weighs more than she does and I'm worried it will cause her back serious damage if we don't change and get her not to "NEED" all this stuff, all the time. Does anyone have any tips or suggestions for de-cluttering without making her feel like I have "ruined her life" (as she would say). I'm sure whatever I do, it will be very traumatic for her.
