I am raising a hoarder. My my 7 yr old is a HOARDER. I feel so much better now that I have that out in the open. Every time I turn around I am finding more and more CRAP hidden treasures he finds. Today is no different. YES I realize that right now as I am writing it is not even 9am.
I was upstairs making his bed and once again JUNK flies out of his bed. He had found a empty bottle of soda and it was hidden under his pillow and he also had the packaging to little people. NOT THE LITTLE PEOPLE JUST THE PACKAGING. The kid can’t throw anything away. And even when I do throw it away he will go into the trash and pick it out. As if having a hoarder isn’t bad enough I have to have a TRASH PICKING HOARDER.
It isn’t like I make him play with sticks and paper towels. He has TONS of toys. He has TONS of things to do but yet he continues to pull stuff out of the trash to “MAKE” something out of. But is all that happens is that he hides it and I end up finding it in strange places and have to throw it away only to find it a few days later again hidden.
What am I going to do with him. I don’t want to see him on TV 5 years down the road with his own series on TLC of I am the youngest hoarder.
