1. If I like it, it’s mine.
2. If it’s in my hand, it’s mine.
3. If I can take it from you, it’s mine.
4. If I had it a little while ago, it’s mine.
5. If it’s mine, it must never appear to be yours in any way.
6. If I’m doing or building something, all the pieces are mine.
7. If it looks just like mine, it’s mine.
8. If I saw it first, it’s mine.
9. If you are playing with something and you put it down, it automatically becomes mine.
10. If it’s broken, it’s yours.

  1. Sounds like spoiled children that grow up to be mean, unkind which may lead to other bad habits that eventually may land them in a world of confusion, mental health issues, physical upsets, and in the prison system where they may get worse or begin to learn their kindergarten lessons – new start in the real life of change and positive growth. And learn how to love one another as God intended.
