    Normally I would say this is something that you should have started to do earlier to help you mitigate this but what I would recommend now. is to get something new something You know he’s gonna want and like and you or your partner play with it. when he asks to use it explain the act of sharing and what you’re doing is sharing and then when you share with him ask him to share one of his toys with you at that same time almost like you’re making the exchange after a little while then do it again with something else and they just keep repeating that process over and over that he starts to understand sharing and get the gist of it. Hope that helps. ✌🏽 and love

    If I’m playing with my daughter, or even if she’s playing with a friend and isn’t being nice/ sharing I tell her “if you don’t share I won’t play with you anymore” or “if you aren’t playing nice your friend is going to go home” and then she realizes that she needs to play nice and share. I usually have to tell her more than once, but after I say it she gets the point. And I agree with the post above, get a toy and show your child how to share and how to place nicely

    I think sharing is just a hard concept for toddlers to grasp and accept. But you can teach them how to share in terms they understand and accept... like trading and taking turns. Whenever I mention the word “share” to my son, there’s a 75% chance he will throw a tantrum. If I mention “trade” or “take turns” however, it’s a different story.
