I would love some advice on this.
My older son is 29 months. He has always been very good with his baby brother (who is 8 months). However, now that my younger one is crawling around, big brother is not doing well with the idea of sharing. Whenever my younger one reaches for something, he kicks it away or grabs it and says "no, mine."
I'm struggling with how to deal with this. I totally see his perspective that these have always been his toys. Obviously he has to learn to share with his brother though. I think I've read that kids this age don't really understand sharing yet.
I usually tell him "we have lots of toys, when little brother is done playing with this, it will be your turn" Sometimes i actually sit there with him and help him alternate turns." When we do this he enjoys it and is very quick to tell my little one "ok your turn."
it's my understanding that he shares very well at daycare. he even brings toys to other kids for them to play with.
this is a constant thing. I really can't look away for a minute without him removing something from the baby's reach. how would you handle this? I feel like if my older son was a little bit older it would be easier to correct bc he would understand the idea of sharing better . . .
