What’s mine is mine, and what’s yours is mine!

What’s mine is mine, and what’s yours is mine. When one child’s party toy breaks, it naturally means that their siblings toy becomes public property. I have a young attorney in training and the art of negotiation is practiced daily when this event occurs. My response is to take the toy away and put it back. After complaining and crying, ask the party host if there are extra. If there are no toys left, move towards packing up for the day. After the excitement of friends, party snacks and cake; we are I am headed for a meltdown.
