Sharing is a difficult concept. When Oliver tries to take a toy off another child because he wants to play with it we tell him to "share", explaining that he can play with it in a while. But toddlers are fickle and the concept of waiting is often lost on them. To them life is the here and now.

At church a couple of Sundays ago Oliver saw a little girl playing with a doll. He promtly walked over to her and snatched it away. Hayley spotted this and took it back from him telling him that he shouldn't snatch like that. Oliver quickly retorted: "share!"

Tricky concept sharing.
