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:

What is the best way to store toys outdoors?
Ken, Newport Beach, CA, Father of Josh (6), Eric (4) and Trinity (2)

 

Get an outdoor toy box! A sturdy, weather-resistent container should have its' own spot in the yard or near a door. If outdoor toys (sandbox toys, balls, sports equipment) come indoors, they are bound to track in dirt and germs. Give them their own storage space and wash the box and its' contents on a regular basis. A good rule of thumb is every time you water the grass, hose down the outdoor toys too!
