Learning to Share
Some children share without being asked and without being taught. However learning to share is harder for most children. Here are a few tips to help support your child as thy learn to share:

-Read books about sharing to your child. Your local children's librarian may be able to suggest some books and videos about sharing.
-When playing "taking turn" games, be sure that everyone has a chance to go first and be last.
-Support and praise children when they share. For example, say, "I liked the way you let John play with that toy. You must be proud of yourself."
-Set a good example. Talk about sharing and share something with your child.
-Sharing is important. Children need to try it to learn it.
