Ah yes, been there! I tell my son he doesn’t have to share his toys if he doesn’t want Made in Michigan a long long time ago shirt. I’m not raising him to be a doormat. However, I do warn him ahead of time that if we are at the park and we have toys that he isn’t playing with, I will let other kids play with them if they ask nicely. In the case of kids trying to take his toys away from him, I speak loudly enough that other adults can hear and say some mthing like He is playing with his toy right now. If you would like a turn, ask him if you can have turn playing when he’s done with it.

If the child is over Made in Michigan a long long time ago shirt, I let them know that wanting what someone else is playing with is one thing, but when you take something that belongs to someone else without permission, it is called stealing, and stealing can get him (or her) into trouble. I’m very conscientious about teaching consent and respect for boundaries with my son. The “boys will be boys” excuse doesn’t fly with me, and I’m not shy about letting the caregiver for the child know that until the child learns the basics of sharing versus stealing, they need to do a better job of supervising the child when he or she is playing with others so no one gets hurt.
