The Secret of Toddler Sharing
Little kids don’t share—for a good reason: they don’t know how. Toddlers aren’t selfish or mean when they refuse to let others use their things: they simply do not have the cognitive ability to understand that “sharing” does not equal “gone forever.”
In this easy-to-read guide, ideal for busy parents and early childhood professionals who need to teach children how to share, parent educator Elizabeth Crary offers dozens of practical suggestions that really work with toddlers.
What a social worker tells us she finds helpful about this book:
- “The emphasis on a child’s temperament influencing the ability to share,
- “The ways to teach the sharing strategies,
- “That the coping strategies need to be taught a number of times (‘can take up to 1,000 repetitions’),
- “Encouraging parents to teach the skills in a positive way.”
Useful for 1–4 years
