teaching to retrieve

How do we teach our golden retriever (6 months old next week) to retrieve? If we throw something (her favorite stuffy for example) she will run over to it and check it out, but 9/10 not bring it back or pick it up. And if she does pick it up she runs off with it. She will sometimes bring a stuffy but its to play tug of war and she does this primarily with my son (14) altho we have repeatedly told him no tug of war.
