Sharing is caring... or is it?
This article was posted on the Moms.com facebook feed and I can't decide what my stance is!
I totally agree with a lot of what the author is saying - I don't want my kids to think they are able to force someone to share, and I don't want to force them to share something that is "theirs" that they are playing with. At the same time, I think it's important for our kids to learn compassion and the idea that sharing something doesn't necessarily mean it is gone. We do a lot of taking turns in our house, and sometimes the end of a turn can get a little ugly... but there are also some things that I don't make the kids share ever.
What's your stance? Does forcing sharing give kids a bad sense of entitlement, or is it something every child (and adult) needs to learn?
