Missouri Mom Slammed For Teaching Her Son It’s OK Not To Share

One mom thinks that sharing is really overrated, and her social media post about teaching her son not to share has created major controversy about the importance of sharing for kids.

According to Alanya Kolberg of Springfield, Missouri, who went into some detail about her philosophy in a Facebook post, children shouldn’t have to immediately share their personal toys.

Kolberg explained that her son, Carson, had taken toys to the park to share with a friend he was meeting later, but that he was “approached by at least six boys, all at once demanding that he share his [toys]”.

Carson looked over at his mother for help, and Kolberg says she told her “visibly overwhelmed” child that he could simply say “no” if he didn’t want to share.

Then would-be sharers ran over to Kolberg, trying to tell her that Carson was not sharing.
