hi Radhika Kabra! I understand your concerns. I believe she is the only child. if that's so, she needs to be given opportunity to share things . in the sense create opportunities where she can share her things. first and foremost begin with sharing her clothes and toys which she doesn't use anymore. she can distribute these to children who live in nearby shanties or on roadside. explain to her how by doing so she will bring a smile on many faces which is priceless. tell her, she can exchange one toy of her choice with her close friend to begin with and once she has played with it , she can return it in good condition to her friend with a thank you note/card which she has herself made. ask her how she felt by doing so. At home keep telling her,how sharing is important and how do u share your things with family members all the time and how do u feel after sharing your things. read out story books based on the similar theme. let her write her experiences in a diary. praise her for sharing things in front of the entire family. hope this helps!

Hi Rachika, you need to sit with her and talk to her. Ask her why she feels uncomfortable in sharing?
