At 29 months, most toddlers love to take on projects all over the house but their interests run more towards creating than cleaning up. If yours leaves a mess wherever he parks himself, keep your cool and try one of these tricks to get him to polish up his cleaning skills: If he's finished with a puzzle, help him break the pieces up as part of the game. Or, if he's in training to be the next Picasso, show him that putting away crayons in his art box is part of being an artiste. And don't forget to praise his efforts at being tidy; a little positive reinforcement goes a long way.
Bem… na verdade cá por casa não é bem assim. O gene da mãezinha fez-te (até prova em contrário) ser muuuuito arrumadinha. Ao ponto de eu dizer (como ainda ontem) “deixa aí as princesas que depois do banho voltas a brincar com elas” e tu responderes “não mãe, tou arrumar pimeiro, depois binco outa vez”… :-)
