Should You Teach Sharing?

To Share or Not to Share


One of my friends went to a preschool interview with her child where the head of the school said she does not believe in sharing. Claiming that children under the age of four are not wired to share, she doesn't think that kids should be forced to do so.

Tots can enjoy one toy as long as they please. When they tire of the object, it's free for another wee one to do what they will with it.

While this concept may work well in her environment with proper monitoring, it could be a recipe for disaster when the kid is surrounded by others who expect a little give and take.
