Why Sharing Is Caring

Sharing is such a great life skill to teach children. In fact it is one of the earliest skills we tend to teach them as it can help them get on better in the world if they are able to give a piece of either themselves, or something they have, to others.

It builds relationships and when you share it shows other people that you acknowledge what they have and what they need. It helps develop compassion and understanding of friends and those they come into contact with. When children share something with someone they are saying, without words, ‘I know you are there’. That other child will be more likely to share with them.
