We can share for three yearsThe rewards of working out in the middle are shared between the children, even if the conditions are such that they can even keep to themselves.
In a packing box, stickers and rubber bears were placed on a rolling table. If only one child had pulled the rope, the table would not move, but if the two were holding the rope together, the reward bites were moved to a place where they could be struck through the box's handles. Sometimes it was only possible to access the desired objects on one stake, but sometimes two.
If there was only one access, one of the children had the opportunity to keep the reward. In spite of this, the children almost always shared equally.
