Ah we'll, it had to be done. I would make them earn smiley faces on a reward chart, or marbles in a jar. When they earn 5 smilies or marbles, they can choose 1 toy back.

I have done it heaps of times to A, it is very effective

That is something I haven't really tried. Have no where to put the toys if I take them away LOL.

Love your work by the way. Show 'em whose boss.

I do this often. That, or if I have to pack it away, they have to pay me which means I take money from their money box :lol:

As far as giving them back, they each have to get all their tasks done for the day & they can pick one thing to have back. If they are exceptionally good (nice to each other, do things without me asking etc) they get extra things back. I also sneak some of the smaller things back when they're not around, just to get it all out of my way quicker hehe

Yea toys have gone into garbage bags before and into the rubbish bin. In fact, I must be extra mean because I have put A into the bin for being potty mouthed and saying rubbishy things (so I told him he must belong in the bin. I only had to do it once, now the threat of putting him in the bin is enough :lol:)
