Alanya Kolberg, who is from Missouri, says that she recently took her son to a park with and when they arrived with one of his Minecraft figures other kids wanted to play with her son's toy.
That's when Kolberg says she told her son that its okay to "Say No." Basically, she explained to her child that he doesn't have to share his stuff with others if he doesn't want to.
