Children’s greed

Every greedy child differently, and the reasons for this. Most often, greed is the result of those or other psychological problems. Until the problems are resolved, will not disappear and greed.

Every person should be developed as frugality and generosity. Either extreme begets selfishness. As the saying goes: “the truth is somewhere in the middle.” How important to teach children to feel this balance and sense of proportion. Great if your little one can share with other kids. And at the same time to say no, firmly saying “no”, explaining that this is his favorite toy, he will play himself.

Most often, children begin to perceive themselves as independent person at the age of three. They learn to Express their desires verbally, and learn to manage them. It is very difficult. If your child has trouble sharing, do not rush to call him greedy. “As you will name the boat”, remember? Better to help him in time.

It is therefore important to help adults. They tell the children about the rules:as what not to do, and what we need. “You can’t take someone else’s without permission. Always ask permission from the owner of the toy: “Can I play with your toys?””.

Teach children to make a temporary exchange, “Come on I’ll let you play his machine, and will you let me ride your bike”.

So children learn that the proposed options are much easier and more enjoyable.

If a child shares a toy with a few friends and will not tolerate others, most likely, the question here is not about greed. We, too, do not give read a book from your library unfamiliar man, and close friend with pleasure.

Explain to your children how and when to share important, and in some cases, you can refuse by saying a firm “no” (a gross violation of boundaries, manipulations, etc.).

Once again I want to remind you that the good service here will have a fairy-tale therapy.

The wonderful works of the “cat house” author. Marshak, “We shared an orange” bus. L. Zubkov, “Blue leaves” ed. V. A. Oseeva, “Until the first rain” ed. V. A. Oseeva, “the Tale of the greedy boy” author. O. V. Stepanova, will be good helpers for the prevention and treatment of greed. And also tales of your own, which you can write and share as needed.

And don’t forget the main rule: children learn greed or generosity in the first place in the family.
