My 18 month old daughter has recently begun to act very controlling with her toys around other kids. She is rarely around her peers; in fact the only two children she is consistently around are a 4 year old girl and a 5 year old girl, separately. The older girls often demonstrate this jealous behavior with their toys and her toys alike. Now she is acting this way, and I am wondering if this is just the age when children start to be possessive, or if she is mimicking her playmates.Answer Question
