Episode 7 Show Notes:  

To Share Or Not To Share!

Monica is answering those questions many parents have about sharing and young children.  Hey everyone!  It’s Episode 7 of Crayons and Tantrums.  Today’s episode is tackling this question, to share or not to share?  Is your 2 year old sharing?  Is your 3 year old having difficulty sharing?  

Today’s episode is called “To Share or Not to Share!”  I think it’s the perfect title to explain why young children don’t naturally want to share with their friends or siblings.  Why do you think your child is so possessive of their toys.  Why aren’t 2 year olds willing to share their favorite ball or stuffy?  Have you ever been embarrassed because your child didn’t want to share their toys during their playdate?  Well, if you’ve answered yes to any of these or are shaking your head because this is touching on some realness for you, then throw on your headphones and listen now!

Don’t forget to check in every Wednesday for a new episode. Come hang out with me on Instagram or Pinterest (@monicajsutton), so we can hold each other accountable on understanding your child’s behavior and development and how to best approach the challenges.  Chat soon!
