Zara is at a stage where she's very reluctant to share her things, and we have tried hard to make her understand that sharing is nice, sharing is good. We also remind her that her friends share with her, and so do mummy and daddy. E.g. "Chloe share with you her toys when you go to her house to play right? So you also must share share." "Mummy share with you the nice chocolate ice cream right?" "Daddy share with you the watermelon right?" etc. And "must share share" was something we say to her often when she's not sharing. Sunday after we'd finished shopping in Ikea and took the lift to get to the car park, Zara saw 2 little girls holding on to an Ikea bear each. From her pram, she said to one of the girl nearer to her, "Give you (me) the bear please." When the girl clutched on the bear tighter, Zara said to her, "Must share share mah." Yikes, she thought every thing should be shared and everybody should share.... although she's still reluctant to do her part.
