That’s Mine!

What a great article from Today’s Parent about how to teach your child to share.

We work on sharing everyday by learning to take turns throughout the day with lots of positive praise. I still here the “mine” word during the day from the younger kids but my 3 yr olds have pretty much understand how to share and take turns.

Thinking about toddlers sharing always reminds me of the Toddler’s Creed poem:

If I want it, it’s mine.
If I gave it to you and I change my mind later,
it’s mine.
If I can take it away from you,
it’s mine.
If I had it a little while ago,
it’s mine.
If it’s mine, it will never belong to anyone else,
no matter what.
If we are building something together,
all the pieces are mine.
If it looks like mine, it’s mine.
