Carbon has four valence electrons; two in the s orbital and two in the p orbital. However, when you factor in the two lone pairs, carbon has a total of six valence electrons, which means it shares four of them with the other atoms.

Carbon can share four electron pairs in order to complete its valence shell. Carbon's valence shell is completed by sharing four electrons with four other atoms. Carbon is tetravalent, which means that it can form four covalent bonds with other atoms.
