Toddler Sharing: Is Your Child in the MINE Stage?

Toddler Sharing: Is Your Child in the MINE Stage?

Two Toddlers Sharing Do you have problems with your toddler sharing at play dates? Are you dealing with territorial battles? Problems with sharing are part of normal development in toddlers, but parents can foster sharing skills in young children with a few learning opportunities and offering praise along the way. Since toddlers naturally want to mimic adults, begin early by modeling behavior. As an example, if you are eating a cookie, break it in half and give part to your toddler while explaining that you are sharing this cookie with him.
