How do you go about it? I read recently that they do not understand at this age and it will damage their security to make them give there toys to another child to play with? What if this other child is a relative, always at your house and never brings or has any of their own toys to bring over and share?
Is this really true?

I don't think it could damage them , but thats jmo. I always try to encourage my kids to share. I think the younger you teach them the easier it for them to learn. All you can do is try, i never force them to , that could probably be damaging.

Ohh, sorry. To answer your question, i got about it by taking turns. Let one play with it then tell her its the next person's turn now. If she is reluctant i tell her , don't worry your going to get it back when its your turn. Start off with very fast turns. So she gets the concept kinda just like passing the toy back and forth. Then let one child do something with it a little longer than the first time, and so on. It doesn't work in one night. But for the most part it has proven to be affective for me and my kids. P.S they never want to share their very favorite toy, so i wouldn't start with that. lol
