Sharing. What is up with it? An easy concept to understand, yet a difficult one to put into action. At least for my two year old.

So Niko’s got about a thousand toys – some of which are his favourites, some which act as secondary favourites and some which fare better as dust collectors than their actual intentioned purpose. The abacus falls in the latter category. That was until Niko’s beloved cousin Ramona showed interest in this colourful toy. At which point Niko’s passion for the abacus was ignited and his hands were the sole ones allowed (at least in his mind) to touch its favoured counters.

I’m not sure what the best strategy is for teaching successful sharing. While we are persistent in our attempts to enforce this  concept, none seem to have sunken in too well just yet. So I’m open to suggestions! What’s your secret for getting your toddler to share his precious, semi-precious and not-so-precious toys?
