Bad Mom Files: I Don't Think Kids Should Be Forced To Share
Share and share alike. It is one of the tenets of childhood. And yet, forced sharing is coming into question by some preschools and parents of little kids.
There are preschools in the US that have written down 'no sharing' policies.

They say that forced sharing creates a feeling of entitlement in the kid who wants -- and gets -- the toy.
