    how to teach a child to place things correctly?

    my son is not placing his things in correct place. he is just playing and leave the things in that place itself. i had told him to place in the right place but he is never minding my words. how can i teach him?

    Re: how to teach a child to place things correctly?

    Hi Kirthi , Welcome to penmai .......

    How old is your son ?

    A reward system will work ......i.e Get a REWARD CHART(simply make one ...) and buy some gold , silver , bronze star stickers ........
    Every time he tidies after play or using stuff reward appropriately with a sticker on chart..... based on number and colour of star accumulated at end of month reward with a simple gift .....

    You can initially chat and help him with the task ...... Use tell, show, do.....
    Eg- when you finish kitchen work call him and show the mess ...... explain that it is not nice to leave the counter top messy and you are going to clear it ..... encourage him to help you .... Gradually make him understand the concept ......
    Encourage him to apply the same principle for his things too.......

    Explain that things scattered haphazardly can lead to falls and accidents ...

    Make him feel like a big boy who is his mom's chief helper ...... This assignation of an important role will make him happy and he will feel responsible ..... Always appreciate with words and thank him for reducing your work load .....

    Hope these tips help ...........Good luck .......

    Another suggestion is,

    You can tell the child, once he finishes playing with few toys and switching over to the next toy, ask him to keep the previous toy in it's original place, so that he need not go in search of it if it is just thrown anywhere he likes.

    Tell him, whenever he wants a specific toy, the next time, he can go to his play shelf and take it immediately, if he is keeping them correctly after playing.

    And he can tell his other tiny friends, that he has kept his scooter toy in the 3rd rack.....like that. and if his friend finds it there, he will also keep his toys in the similar way.

    You can provide him few shelves with separate racks having small compartments, where each and every toy could be placed separately.

    You can also play with him in the following manner.

    First ask him to keep all the toys in separate racks.

    Then, tell him to ask you to find out the specific toys correctly.

    You find them and bring it to him.

    Now tell him, that you were able to find them correctly, only because, he has kept them exactly in the same place after playing. Also tell him that if he had thrown them away, you couldn't have found the toy correctly.

    For each and every correct deed , you need to praise him.

    If he is not following them immediately, please do not scold him, but tell him, that he is going to follow it next time, so that it is going to be very easy.

    This will cultivate him the habit of keeping the things in it's place.
