46. Kids Learn About Sharing

Most kids with disabilities can learn something about sharing from the examples of others sharing with them.

Living in society means sharing what we have and earn in so many ways, and it means others share with us, too.

Here is a way to practice what sharing is like: First lie on your back and completely relax your body. Then breathe evenly in and out and close your eyes.

Imagine that you are having a festival at school. All the kids are going to be contributing prizes for the games to be played.

Think about something you have that is in good condition that you can contribute for a prize. It should be something you enjoy so you know for sure that some other kid will be glad to win it.

At the same time, remember that you will have a chance to win a prize too. So in this way, all the kids are sharing what they have with each other.

Think to yourself how it feels to share and win in return. Does it feel good to be in the circle of sharing?

One of the benefits is that you will have something new to you to play with and enjoy that you didn't have before, and so will the child that ends up winning your gift.

Now, open your eyes and stretch out, remembering that in this practice game sharing felt good.

In summary, it is through sharing back and forth, we come to realize that our family and community are part of one big worldwide family, sharing with each other many times throughout the day in so many ways.
