well, my 5 year old kept coming home without her hair tyes. i simply reminded her that i wanted her to come home with her hair tyes still in and not lose them. i remind her every other day before she leaves the house when i give her her goodbye hug.

but the only way is to really let them suffer the consequences from the school of what they have lost - that's what responsibility is all about... don't protect them from the affects, and they will soon enough learn that if they are not responsible, they are making their own lives difficult.

I second Rebecca. Help remind them but let your child experience the consequence of their own actions. I teach my daughter the mental check lists. They work for her but they didn't work for me when I was her age (6). I didn't improve until high school. LOL! 



What am I talking about!?! I still lose and misplace everything. LMAO!



Sorry Marcie,
