Just wondering what your point of view is on it?
I babysit a little girl that is only 3 months younger than my 2 year old daughter.So, of course they have thier "ITS MINE" toddler moments...all out battles I tell ya :)
When they fight over a toy (sometimes something as stupid as a play spoon when there are like 10 thousand in there) I would just take it from the taker awayer and give it back to the first one.
THEN I thought to myself..wouldnt it be a better lesson learned if I had the taker awayer GIVE it back themselves. WHOA. Okay.easier said then done for sure..but hey..maybe its worth the headache in the long run?
Then there are the days when My whole mudroom is packed full of toys I've just taken away from them BOTH and put out there just to get rid of the fight all together when they just won't stop over a particular toy.
GOTTA LOVE THE TODDLER!! haha...I really do tho..they are so cute :)
With my twins, by about 2 I started asking them to give it back. I'd say, "Oh, _______, that isn't sweet. Now give the _________ back to brother/sister. It's not your turn right now." If they didn't comply I took whatever it was and handed it to the other one while saying, "Uh Oh, it's so sad you didn't share with your brother/sister." Then I'd take the taker to their room for a little alone time. It was hard at first, but at 3 1/2 I don't have to deal with that issue too often anymore. So, I'd say it is worth the effort. GL!
