Say HI! on social media:
One of the keys to harmony at home is manipulating the environment to support you. If your home doesn’t flow, if it’s overwhelmed with “stuff”, clutter and toys – it’s nearly impossible to be a conscious parent.
On the surface, it would seem almost ridiculous for toys to be a “big deal”. But again and again in my work with parents I learn that through a simple declutter of toys a pandora’s box of emotions and fears bursts open. Why? Because Toys have come to symbolize a lot in our society. Let’s look at some of those things:
1. “The toys I have bought for my children represent my love for them.”
2. “The toys my children have represent special people in their lives.”
3. “The toys we have represent the promise of prodigy, or at least education.”
4. “The toys we have are a status symbol that prove I’m providing prosperity for my children.”
5. “They toys I buy serve as a ‘behavior modification’ trump card.”
6. “I don’t want to waste them now that I’ve bought them.”
7. “What if they need them again in the future.”
Ultimately the relationships we have with our stuff mimics the relationship we have with ourselves, and the world.
