Dear Marianne: Are there any toys that will help my preschool daughter learn to share? Peggy, Cleveland, OH, Mom of Katie (3 1/2)
I would suggest toys that promote turn-taking. Board and card games encourage this while having fun. Be sure to play with her and really emphasize how proud you are when your child waits for a turn. Clapping, verbal encouragement and positive reinforcement will make this all part of the game. She may soon realize that sharing can be fun.

Q&A Corner

Dear Marianne:

How often should you clean plastic toys?
Piper. Shreveport, LA, Mom of Anna, 2, Ben, 3 and Aidan, 5.

 

It is so important to clean toys on a regular basis. Plastic and vinyl toys harbor bacteria and germs. I suggest to regularly use a bleach and water solution and wash toys that are played with often, at least once per week. If your child has a cold or has playmates over, then clean as needed. If you add this into your household cleaning routine, it will make for a cleaner and happier play experience for your child.
