Teaching Kids to Share
- Model sharing yourself! Kids learn by watching what YOU do! So next time you're eating an ice cream cone, offer your kid a bite and let him know you enjoy sharing with him!
- Have your kid take turns! Let your kid know that he can play with the toy for a few minutes and then it'll be his friend's turn. Set a timer for a minute or two and when it dings, help your child hand over the toy.
- Tuck away prized toys! Don't force your kid to share prized possessions, like his lovey or his new birthday gift. If he has a friend coming over, give him a shot to put any toys he doesn't want to share away. Then explain to him that the toys that are left are fair game.
