That's right he is 2 1/2. He lost all his toys in the living room for not picking up. It started with his blocks he decided he didn't want to pick up. So after 15 minutes his game system grandma got him for Christmas was also gone and he still had to pick up the blocks. Then he didn't want to pick up his wooden train tracks. Well 1/2 hour into that after he lost that and his dump truck. I told he when he got up in the morning all his toys in the living room where gone for 2 days. His toys in his room has to stay in his room. He will pick up for everyone but me and daddy I don't think so mommy will win this war.

My son is 3 and doesn't know how to pick up toys alone. We do it together because he always gets distracted. There is no way he would understand those consequences

What I would start doing, is implementing a rule that any toys not picked up are taken away. It creates more of an understanding of WHY the toy was taken away. Kids that small don't always correlate the reason, and they rarely correlate the reason several days later.

Given his age, it's a bit lengthy and harsh.
