Mom’s Post About Teaching Her Son Not to Share All The Time Hit a Nerve

When two kids meet at the park and one of them has a toy, what do many of us automatically do?

We most likely say something like that “Why don’t you share your toy, sweetie?” or gently encourage the kids to play together and share the toy. We might even feel ashamed if our child insists on not sharing, being “that kid” who won’t share their most beloved toy.

But a viral post that’s making it way around the Internet is challenging the way that parents think about sharing in a very interesting way.
