Turn taking & Sharing

Playing with Flockmen gives a vast amount of opportunities for children to practice turn taking, listening and sharing skills. All of these are important life skills.

To take turn and wait for a 2 year old can sometimes prove to be a very difficult task, but practising it will make it worthwhile. Use language that encourages turn taking: it is your go now, it is my turn to put it there, please can you wait.

To share is to empathy with others. Cultivating sharing skills will enable your child to become a generous person. Remember, that toddlers have a very strong possession instinct.

Their toys are their valued collection, and therefore modelling positive sharing is very important at this age.
