if someone makes you do it? At my daughter’s school holiday party, five prizes were awarded to winners of one of the games. My daughter won one of the prizes; it was a pack of 24 silly bands. I thought it would be a nice thing for her to pass the pack around and let all the other kids pick one out to keep. After all, there were more than enough for all the kids and my daughter doesn’t need 24 more silly bands. She, however, didn’t like my suggestion to share. But I wasn’t going to let it go, so I kind of sort of made her do it. Another mom saw what my daugther was doing and was like “Oh, that is so sweet.” It so happened her son had also won a pack of silly bands and so she told HIM he needed to share his as well. Like my daughter, he was not too keen on the idea but did it anyway. All the kids were appreciative and my daughter was glad she shared despite her initial reluctance. I feel bad for kind of sort of forcing her to do it, but sometimes if thoughtfulness and generosity don’t come naturally to a child, isn’t it okay to help “encourage” it?
