Kids lose stuff.
And I was one of those kids. “If your head wasn’t attached, you’d lose it!” my mom was heard (by the neighbors) to yell, maybe weekly. Do your kids lose track of things so often that you despair? It’s normal. It’s natural. It’s infuriating!
You can teach kids to keep track.
Use your time to teach them some responsibility and resilience, that way you can feel great about these conversations instead of frustrated.
