It is said that “the adult who enjoy helping others are those children who learn to share things in their early childhood.”
This is responsibility of every parent to develop habit of sharing their things with friends, relatives and needy ones as well. It is upto parents how they create environment for children to share and tell them that “sharing is caring”
Here are some points which any parent can adopt to create habit of sharin
g among children.
Environment is the main thing around the children. This isthe duty of every parent to create environment of sharing around your kid. For example, make him some cookies or cut some apple pieces and ask him or her share with your class fellows. Give him two pencils and tell him this is “pencil of sharing” if anybody doesn’t bring pencil just share one with him.
TALK ABOUT “WHAT YOU SHARE TODAY”
When you go to bed every day, ask about his whole routine and about sharing thing today. Questions like, does he offered his lunch to his class mates. Just explain him importance of sharing with other if he refuse to share anything with anybody else and encourage him for second morning to share his meal with anyone.
OFFERING AND SHARING THINGS WITH PEOPLE AROUND HIM
Ask your child to share whatever he is eating not only with kids but people around him even elders as well. For example, if he is eating cookies ask him to share with every person present in hall or in home. And ask elders also to take one bite from it.
CHART OF SHARING:
In your home make a chart for your kid. In that chart just write down responsib
ilities and sharing task as well. And keep some rewards against completing those tasks. Like dinner at their favorite outlet. Or walk in their favorite park. Etc
MAKE TIMER FOR PROMOTING SHARING HABIT:
Teachers or parents who have more than one kid can set timer for playing with toys. Like it’s the common habit of kids to fight over one thing it doesn’t matter how many things you have at your home/daycare. So a great tip set timer like five minutes Sarah will play and after five minutes Abdullah will play.
GENERIOSITY AND SHARING HABIT SHOULD BE PROMOTED:
You should set an example of generosity and kindness for your child. In front of him help poor like your m
aid or beggars on roads. For example, if you are on shop and buying a chocolate for your kid, buy two ask him to give one to any poor kid ou
tside the shop or anywhere. Because parents are the super hero of every kid so set an example for them and definitely they will learn how to share.
