I have been cleaning out our school room and trying to file away the special work from this year, and I realized 2 things:
- My kids would like me to keep every single paper they ever touched with even a drop of paint or stroke of pencil lead.
- Even though I feel as though I am throwing out a ton of stuff (doubtless due to the kids opinion) the binders filled with folders for each year of school state otherwise. It is getting out of hand.
How do you determine what to keep, and just how much in general? How do you store it for them to see how they’re coming along in school? How do you do it without them acting like you are setting fire the The Louvre?
I can see that with a 2nd grader and Kindergartener this paper hoarding situation needs to be dealt with in a loving and logical way.
Thanks for your help!!!
