D2 is rapidly approaching two years old and is learning all about sharing. I know that I am not the only mother to notice that in the ego-centric toddler universe, sharing is anathema. While we were in California D2 and I went to a story time at the local library. After the program the tots dispersed to the play area.

I gently redirected him to another toy only to watch another toddler snatch that toy out of D2's hands! The tot's mother ran up to her son an scolded him for snatching the toy away and we all commiserated about the challenges of teaching our LO's to share.
