Do any of you moms out there ever feel like you cant have anything with kids around? My sons always find a way to ruin my stuff one way or another, it really upsets me because some of the stuff that I have that I wouldn't think my sons would destroy still seems to get ruined or broken. stuff that I used to have from before I had children like my vanity all the knobs are off and the drawers are always taken out, I dont even keep jewelry in it anymore just in the top part because they cant reach.my dresser has things on it that are decoration and are at the back but they still seem to get my stuff and smash it or I find my stuff all over the house. I hate it mostly my stuff is boxed away and I am just not able to display it or have it anymore because I dont have a place for it. some of that stuff that my sons have destroyed is from my mom and she passed away 4 months ago. my sons are 7 5 and 17 months. Honestly I dont get mad at them, I just am upset that my stuff gets broken or lost and damaged or I just give up and box it away until they get older.Answer Question

I am sorry about your Mom :( I would box it all up & display it when they are older. I have curio cabinets to display my special items but my kids would never dare to break or disassemble any item in our home. I never moved anything away on coffee tables unless it was glass & it was accidentally tipped etc. Even when we go over peoples homes to visit my kids never touch anything. I taught them from when they started to walk to be careful & have respect for others things. My Son is 7 & the only thing he ever broke & it was accidentally was a Christmas ball that fell off the tree. He was very upset at that too. I think you need to sit the bigger boys down & have a talk & there should be consequences for any damages. Take their things away or privileges.

I have sort of make it a habit to keep my kids out of my room unless I am in there most of the time. They need permission from me to go hang out in my room (to watch tv or movies). DD makes a mess of my make up once in a while and she gets talked to by me. She hasn't done that in a while though. If I don't want the kids to play with something, I keep it very out of reach or out of sight. They are old enough to know better at this point though, so I don't worry so much anymore. DD still loves to check out the make up and jewelry though. Since my mom sent her a bunch of old costume jewelry she has left mine alone.
