Talk About Donating
Keeping in mind your child’s age and maturity, talk to them about what you are doing and why you are doing it. Any communication should be straight forward and something that your child will be able to relate to. A statement like “we are giving up your teddy bear so that another little boy your age who doesn’t have one can play with it” works well. Your child knows where the toy is going and he will be able to understand that other children like to play with teddy bears, too.
