Mom Goes on Rant Explaining Why She Taught Her Son He Doesn’t Always Have to Share

Alanya Kolberg was less than thrilled when she and her son recently visited a park after a group of young boys rushed him to demand a shot of his toys. Yet she took a route that may surprise many, explaining to her son that he doesn’t need to share his toys, much to chagrin of nearby parents.

Yet it appears that many parents and adults agree with Alanya’s decision, with her Facebook post detailing the experience receiving more than 200,000 likes and shares from fellow users.

Countless parents have since commented on the post to share their thoughts on the topic of sharing, and while there were views from either side of the spectrum, most were in overwhelming support of Alanya.

Take a look at full post and comments that proceeded it, was Alanya totally justified in her decision to teach her son there’s no need to always share with other children?
