Mother Refuses To Teach Her Young Son To Share – Then Gives THIS Message To ‘SNOWFLAKES’

This mother has an important lesson to teach snowflakes out there… you don’t have to share what is yours. You know what? No one ‘taught’ me to share when I was a kid. I pretty much always did, but I also knew there was a line of ownership and it was okay to not share with others at given times. This Missouri mom took her little boy to the playground and he wanted to take his favorite toys with him. When he got there, six boys approached him and wanted him to share. He didn’t want to and looked to his mom for guidance. She told him he didn’t have to share… that they were his toys. And I agree.

Since when did it become incumbent on everyone to share all they have? That’s a communist sentiment. Ownership of what is yours is a big part of your identity. It actually can make or break you as you grow up. The six boys who he would not share with first ran to the boy’s mother and when she wouldn’t make her son share, they ran to their parents who gave the mother dirty looks. Shame on all of you! If I come over and demand you share your Land Rover with me, would you? Of course not. You don’t know me from Adam. Why would you expect your children to share their most prize possessions with just anyone out there? Get real.

As the mom from Missouri wrote on Facebook, she and her son, Carson, were at the park when the young boy was besieged by other children who wanted to play with his toys. Carson had brought the toys to show a friend and didn’t want to share them with anyone else. Kolberg wrote:

“As soon as we walked in the park, Carson was approached by at least six boys, all at once demanding that he share his transformer, Minecraft figure, and truck. He was visibly overwhelmed and clutched them to his chest as the boys reached for them. He looked at me.”

Rather than telling her son to share with the other children, Kolberg told Carson to stand his ground:

“’You can tell them no, Carson,’ I said. ‘Just say no. You don’t have to say anything else.’”

Frustrated by Carson’s refusal to share, the children appealed to his mother. Kolberg wrote that her response earned her a few “dirty looks” from the other parents at the park:

“Of course, as soon as he said no, the boys ran to tattle to me that he was not sharing. I said, ‘He doesn’t have to share with you. He said no. If he wants to share, he will.’”

The mother gave an example of having to share a sandwich and pointed out that the ones with the bad manners are the ones asking in the first place. That is exactly right. I would never dream of going up to someone in a coffee shop and asking them to share their lunch or even their tablet with me. Geez. Who do these people think they are? And… they are teaching their children a trait that is non-survival.

If you force your children to share everything, how are you going to teach them to set boundaries and ever say no? That could lead to your child being raped, assaulted or killed… so, exactly how does the ‘insistence’ of ‘sharing’ make you a good parent? I love this quote: “[W]hose manners are lacking here? The person reluctant to give his three toys away to six strangers, or the six strangers demanding to be given something that doesn’t belong to them, even when the owner is obviously uncomfortable?” I think this is a great mother and her Facebook post has been shared over 225,000 times. I support her 100%.
