To share, or not to share, is that the question?

So many parents in our parent groups and The Parent Club come to us with questions about sharing, it's a subject that we knew we had to cover!

Why is sharing such a hot-topic conversation?

Well, sharing brings on big feelings for parents and children and there are so many differing thoughts and views on how to handle sharing. 

And sharing can feel unfair, or questionable. 

Like when your child demands another child's toy at a playgroup, for instance, it can feel like second nature to make him or her wait. But when another child demands a toy from yours, we often feel propelled to hand it over.

But, what if we went beyond what fair sharing looks like, and into why sharing so often doesn't happen? What if we treated the symptom, instead of the problem?

Try This Entirely New Spin on Sharing

So today, Abigail and Elle share an entirely new spin on parenting, with some concrete tools on handling sharing with the children in your lives.

More Resources About Sharing

At Hand in Hand Parenting, we're fans of this "I'll be with you while you wait," strategy. This way of listening to a child has multiple benefits for your child's emotional health, and it also stops the back and forth taking turns that can be so frustrating and stressful to put in place.
