What To Tell Kids Instead of "You're So Smart"

What To Tell Kids Instead of "You're So Smart" There’s no such thing as a gifted child—Albert Einstein had many failures when starting his work and most Nobel laureates weren’t exceptionally smart as children. If you want to raise a “gifted child,” telling your kids that they’re smart could lead to burnout and could even drive them to fear failu...

Does your child sometimes have a hard time sharing?

Sharing is a complicated social skill that takes guidance and practice to develop. Young children get very attached to their possessions, and they don't understand how sharing will affect them or their toy.

In order to get a better understanding of these feelings, think for a minute about one of your most prized or important possessions - perhaps your computer, camera, car or boat. Now think of having a friend take it away to use for a day. That feeling of apprehension and uncertainty, plus inexperience, may be at the root of your child's reluctance to share.

The good news is that over time your child can become comfortable sharing. Here are some things that you can do to help.


Teach Your Child How to Share


Demonstrate how to share.
Share things with your child and point out that you are sharing. For example, "Would you like a turn on my calculator? I'd be happy to share it with you."

Encourage your child to share toys with you.
It's often easier for a child to share with a parent, since the child knows you'll be careful and that you'll give the toy back when you're done. It makes for good sharing practice. When you hand her toy back, explain what she just did, "You shared so nicely, thank you." That way she has a good feeling about what it means to share, since her young friends probably won't treat it the same way.

Give your child choices.
Instead of demanding that your child share a specific toy, give her some options. For example, "Sarah would like to play with a stuffed animal. Which one would you like to let her play with?"

Create situations that require sharing.
Your child can get good practice with sharing when given toys or games that require two or more people to play, such as board games or yard games (like badminton or ball games.) Also look for activities that have plenty of parts for everyone, such as modeling clay, coloring or art projects, or building with blocks.

Let your child know what to expect prior to a sharing situation.
Before a friend's visit let her know how long the friend will be there, and reassure her that all her things will still be hers after the friend leaves. Allow your child to put away a few favorite things that do not have to be shared. Never require a child to share a special toy that is a frequent plaything or bedtime companion.

Be understanding and supportive.
When your child is waiting her turn, or handing over something to share (when she doesn't really want to!) give her a hug and a kind word. Let you know you understand that sometimes it can be hard to share, but you're proud of her for doing it.

Praise good sharing moments.
Watch for good things that happen - no matter how briefly - and praise your child for sharing nicely.

"My children were constantly fighting over toys, even if there are two identical ones. My husband bought one of those label making machines, and now if one of the children has a special toy we label it. My son, Daniel is into spelling things right now, so he types his name onto the label maker, prints it out and sticks the label on his toy. We help my daughter label her toys, too. They both beam at seeing their names on their special things, and they respect each other's toys as well."
~~~ Ezia, mother to Daniel, age 4 and Sedona, age 2

What not to do!

Don't shame your child for not sharing.
If your child isn't willing to share he needs to learn more about the process. Teach, rather than punish.

Don't embarrass your child with a public reprimand.
Even if you've given lessons, prepared your child and set up a good situation for sharing, your child might still refuse to share. When this happens, take him to another room and discuss the issue privately, and set a plan.

Don't force your child to share special toys, gifts or lovies. Some things should be exempt from sharing rules, such as a favorite doll, a stuffed animal he sleeps with, a fragile toy, or a gift recently given to him. This can create negative feelings about sharing that will spill over into all other sharing lessons.
