Share and Take Turns!

Share and Take Turns!

Author: Anita Spencer
Author Role: Deputy Director of Primary

Most childhood conflicts occur because someone chooses not to share or take turns with others. It could be over an object, a turn in a game or a place to sit or stand.

Children who are good at sharing and taking turns develop confidence, are happier, enjoy better friendship and become better problem solvers.

Over the past week, your child has been learning the skills to:

  • Think of others and show respect,
  • Be generous and care for others, and
  • Practise problem solving to find a way to play together.
