The children are very possessive and go through a natural self-centered stage in which they have the impression that they have everything when they have about 2 anisors. The concept of sharing is not part of their vocabulary and behavior!
So not infrequently you will face an expression of your child who will come to get you out of your mind "it's mine !!!" or "give it to me; it's mine!" And of no one else ... It is essential to teach him to share things and toys. Do it in the most creative ways!
A child fails to understand the concept of "sharing" by the age of 5. But he can be learned and educated in the spirit of essential rules, which make the preparation for it period.
1. Always explain a few basic and basic rules!
First of all you have to have the patience and perseverance to teach him to wait his turn (on the "first him, then you" principle).
Tell her that when she walks away from a toy, it can be taken by anyone else to play with it. This means that it is "free" to be used by others. And he must wait for some children to abandon some public playgrounds or toys before playing with them.
2. Set time limits!
Next time your little one does not want to share the toy with another child, set a time limit. Tell the child that he has x minutes to play with the toy, and when the time expires, he must give the brother to play with it for the same amount of time. It will help him understand how the process of waiting for his turn works and also help him understand that giving up the toy is temporary and not permanent.
3. Be an example for him!
Children pay close attention to what their parents are doing and often try to imitate them. So, let the child surprise you in situations where you practice sharing food or items with family members or other people. It is advisable to do this with him too! Ask him if he wants a piece of your sandwich, if he wants to share the armchair or sofa, etc.
4. Choose a theme to play when playing in a group!
If more children come home to you with different types of toys (on different topics), your little one will feel the need (naturally) to grab them and want them for him.
If you choose a theme for group play (farm, cooking, car racing), then all the children will have similar toys at your disposal and your little one will not crave a car that he has or a horse in the basket. his toys. If the colors were similar, then it would be even simpler.
5. Involve him in charitable actions!
The most effective way in which children can understand the need and necessity of the divided is the charitable actions. The holiday season is most appropriate in this regard because it has an emotional burden and because you can more easily explain why the less fortunate ones like him should be helped.
6. Get involved in RPGs!
If your little one does not get entangled in sharing toys with others, involve him in a role reversal game. Be the one who says "no" constantly when your child asks for a toy or something. If he gets upset and starts crying, it is the right time to talk to him and tell him exactly how others feel when he refuses to give up their toys. You can remind him of this moment next time he refuses to share.
7. Praise him and encourage him every time he shares!
You make so many efforts to educate him and help him understand that he must share that you forget to compliment or praise him when he manages to put into practice what you learn. It is advisable to praise and encourage every effort you make.
