Good Morning all,

Please could you share any advice or ideas on how I can teach my toddler to share. He is 3YO and he's a 1YO brother. We have been having problems with him not wanting to share and going into a rage when being made to do so. From this point he can often hit people, bite and damage belongings. The main problem is that we can use a time out area at home to calm down but at Pre school he doesn't have this. I am constantly being spoken to about what naughty aggressive thing he has done that day as a result. It's getting to the point where I think they would prefer he leaves.

So any games I can play, key phrases. Please help me. Thank you.

There are some tips on our aging sharing on Ask Dr Sears which might help smile

How are Pre-school encouraging good behaviour and dealing with bad behaviour? Does he have melt downs over anything else apart from sharing?

I'm a nursery teacher and mom and what we do at work(nursery) and home is the child who gets the toy first gets to use it and for as long as he/she wishes. Once that child is done with that toy, then the other child can use it. Works quite well at home. We just say. "He has that first, when he's done, you can borrow it." That way they have some rules I suppose rather than just taking something off them they know they use that toy as long as they want until they're done with it. Also I don't make my kids share one toy if the one who got it first wants to play alone. I make the other children respect the fact he wants to play with it alone vice Versa. Teachers them patience and respect I think. Idk if that helps but just a little tip that works for us. Xx
