Sharing is caring, I would always hear those words in school and in my household when I was younger. I would sometimes say it to my sisters when I wanted a bite of what they were eating, haha! The fact of the matter is that sharing is caring, when you share, it shows that you have compassion and that you have manners. Although, as adults we know these things and also children of a certain age, toddlers on the other hand; not so much. These 6 books that teach toddlers how to share will make it easier for you and for them to understand the importance of sharing.
We all know that toddlers are very possessive of their toys and belongings, so it may be more work to teach them that sharing is important and that they should get accustomed to it. My twins sometimes do not like to share their toys, specially when it’s a new toy. I understand them and there for I sometimes do not make them share their new toys with their siblings. I get it, they are excited and super happy about it, so I give them time to play by themselves because sometimes kids need their space, you know? But always make it a point to my three children that they all have to share and play together, whether it’s a new toy, a new book, crayons or even a bike. Plus, when they play together and share, they have more fun.
I love simple ways that teaches kids how to share and I love implementing it with my children. For example, I buy only one memory card game because I know this will sort of “force” them to share and play together. This teaches my children to take turns, to have patient, to help and learn together and I love that. I love when my kids get along and learn new things together, instead of fighting and screaming because they don’t want to share something. Gosh! It happens, don’t get me wrong, my household is far from perfect and I do have to break up fights more often then I would want to admit. It is what it is and in a house full of kids it’s bound to happen. We as parents have to come in and teach our kids what’s right from wrong and this include teaching them how to share and the importance of sharing.
