@Region Philbis,
Jane, I disagree with Reg above inasmuch as you had identified the phrase as a q; thus,

Do our parents say we must learn to share?

And yes, it can be rewritten in q form perhaps 25 different ways depending on the original meaning

Must we say our parents learn to share?

Must Our parents learn to say, "We share?"

etc etc etc

The word 'do' is not present in the words available to make the sentence.

@dalehileman,

it's a question (ie. homework problem) that is not to be answered in the form of a question...

@dalehileman,
the sentence must consist of these 8 words - all 8 of them - and only these eight
