I don’t want to share

“You can’t have your cake and eat it, too.”

Sharing is an important skill that is required to function in society. If a child does not learn how to share, take turns or compromise, the child will struggle in social situations. The child will likely have very few, if any, friends. When disagreements arise, the child is probably not equipped to navigate or resolve conflict.

In other words, without adequate skills, the child will try to have their cake and eat it too.

Let’s take Sam, for example. Sam invited his classmates to his birthday party. Surrounded by his peers, Sam was delighted to blow out the candles on his birthday cake. 

Unfortunately for the guests, Sam had no intentions of sharing. Losing even a single bite of cake that Sam was “entitled” to on Sam’s special day was unthinkable. 

Consequently, Sam’s actions had a detrimental impact on everyone else.
