The idea that you should throw out stuff you don’t like when your kids are old is a common one.
It may be more common in the U.S. than in Europe, where the idea is even more widespread.
But when it comes to things like clothing and bedding, it can still be confusing.
It’s also more common than you think, especially in places like Japan and the United States, where kids are more likely to be raised by parents who like to keep things that are familiar and old.
The idea of throwing out old things can sound like a weird idea, says Michelle LeBlanc, a professor of children and family studies at the University of California, San Diego.
But she says that when it does, it usually means throwing away something you think is “out of date.”
“You may not think about throwing it away until the end of your kids’ lives, but they’re likely to get very, very upset about it,” LeBlac says.
“It’s really a very emotional process, because kids are so much more likely than adults to not be able to do something for themselves,” she says. “
If your kids don.s t want to use it, you should let them have the freedom to do it, LeBlanc says. “

If they don’t, it may be better to put it on the back burner.
Don’t just throw away a toy, either.
Kids can sometimes just throw out a blanket and bedspread, says Patricia Koss, a family psychologist at the Family Psychology Institute at the Johns Hopkins University.
And there’s no need to throw away your dog.
She says dogs are often the best source of old clothes, as they will be more likely and willing to accept things they see as old.
“They’re just more open to new things,” Koss says.
Koss also says that some dogs can actually help you understand what they’re wearing by being very attached to them.
Some children are more willing to throw things away than others.
For example, if you have two-year-olds, they may not understand the importance of a pair of shoes that you throw away, Leblanc says.
But kids can learn to appreciate their parents’ love for things, she says, which is why LeBlanch recommends letting your kids take things like toys and bedspreads that they love and throw them away.
