#1: Allow Scripture to shape your child’s attitude about their possessions from an early age. Everything we have is His. He made it. He owns it. It’s all His. (James 1:17) From an early age, encourage your child to be generous with what God has given them. Encourage them to share their toys and possessions. Some children naturally share, whereas others find this difficult. No matter the disposition of your child, expect your child to share with others.
