Toddler Property Laws

Posted on the door of the toddler room at The Academy.

1. If I like it, it’s mine.

2. If it’s in my hand, it’s mine.

3. If I can take it from you, it’s mine.

4. If I had it a little while ago, it’s mine.

5. If it’s mine, it must never appear to be yours in any way.

6. If I’m doing or building something, all the pieces are mine.

7. If it looks just like mine, it is mine.

8. If I saw it first, it’s mine.

9. If you are playing with something and you put it down, it automatically becomes mine.

10. If it’s broken, it’s yours!

  1. Can these only apply to toddlers? I think they may be a good thing to adopt in my own life….. I like it!

  2. Love, love, love it. So true, so true. I hope it is ok, but I’m going to copy and nab this for our blog. I have loads of friends and family that will get a kick out of this.

  3. Phoenix,
    I was thinking of you and even thought of adding a line about you and toddler ethics, but I didn’t want to presume. 🙂

  4. See, no wonder it is so hard to teach them about sharing. It is their age. It is what it is, right?

  5. oh that is classic.

  6. So so so true!
