So lately DD (almost 2.5) has been asserting herself a bit more. For the past 2 days we are having some real issues getting her to put her toys away when she's finished. She has usually been pretty good about cleaning up in the past. Typically, when she wanted to move on to something else I would tell her, "OK, let's put away ________ first. I can help you," or something along those lines. But it's not working anymore. It feels ridiculous trying to force her to clean up something, but I also don't want to be picking up the mess all of the time. I realize that in the big picture this is a minor issue, but I still don't know the best approach to take. Thoughts?
