How to encourage sharing between children

Sharing is caring!

Welcome to another Google Hangout with myself and Becky Whitehouse of Be Confident Coaching. In this video we are talking about sharing and how to encourage sharing between children. Sharing is a difficult situation from a young age right through to 10-11 years.  Many of us will no doubt have had to deal with squabbles, both at home and mother and baby groups, when your child is keen to take a toy that another child has.

So,  how do we encourage sharing between children? There are many things to take away from our video and I highly encourage that you take the 6 minutes out of your day to have a watch and let us know what your thoughts are.

Since we know that sometimes even 6 minutes can be impossible here are just some of the topics that we cover in our video:

  • leading by example
  • removing an offending item
  • putting toys away that could cause problems with friends
  • discussing sharing issues with your older child
  • rewarding good sharing
  • remind that sharing is important


Has your child had issues with sharing? Have you come up with any different solutions to the ones we have mentioned?  Please do share them with us below:

Helen is a mum to two, social media consultant, and website editor; and this site is (we think) the only Social Enterprise parent blog! Since giving up being a business analyst when juggling travel, work and kids proved too complicated, she founded KiddyCharts so she could be with her kids, and use those grey cells at the same time. KiddyCharts has reach of over 1.1million across social and the site. The blog works with big family brands (including travel) to help promote their services, as well as offering free resources to parents of kids under 10. It gives 80%+ profits to Reverence for Life, who fund a number of important initiatives in Africa, including bringing running water and basic equipment to a school in Tanzania. Helen has worked as a digital marketing consultant (IDM qualified) with various organisations, including Channel Mum, Truprint, Talk to Mums, and Micro Scooters. She loves to be creative in the brand campaigns she works on. Get in touch TODAY!
