5 Signs Your Child is Overwhelmed (and that Decluttering Might be the Solution)

With many of the families and classrooms that I work with, one of the biggest things that the adults want to find solutions to is the way children are interacting in the learning/play environment. Children are being aggressive with each other or with the toys and materials they have. Children seem generally unhappy or have unusually short attention spans. Children aren’t showing any real interests or don’t want to participate in the activities that parents/teachers are setting up for them.

And almost always this can be traced back to one thing – clutter in the environment.

Not to mention, when you bring plants indoors you are *literally* growing fresh air!
