Making Kids Share Toys is Socialism?

Making Kids Share Toys is Socialism? January 9, 2019

I swear, these people see evil in places it does not exist, yet cannot see evil when it is right in front of them. Michael Pearl of No Greater Joy magazine is busy telling a mother of a child who plays with another child with fewer toys that forcing them to share toys is teaching them socialism! Apparently in Michael’s world teaching sharing and fair play has evil overtones. Making kids share toys is socialism in action.

Wait a minute! Wait a minute… these are children we are taking about, not mini dictators picking up bad ideas galore by being forced to share. A two year old still has that ‘It’s mine!’ mentality that must be discouraged. The four year old has the tendency to tattle. BOTH of them came learn from this situation. It has nothing to do with being poor or having a number of things. It hasn’t got a thing to do with political systems. It’s the imperfect nature of children learning with lessor self control. Sounds like a perfect opportunity to teach both kids, sometimes repeatedly, about these things.

Learning. Not evil brewing.
