Learn about initiatives that encourage conscious sharing and encourage your child to participate
The Christmas is coming, and it’s likely that your child will gain many gifts. Thinking about it, how about encouraging you to change toys that you no longer use instead of buying new ones?
This is what Brincou Trocou (2016) and the Quintal de Exchanges (2014) propose, companies that carry out the toy exchange service in order to generate a reflection on consumerism . In addition, children still exercise detachment, negotiation, and sustainability.
