My 21 month old daughter sometimes can make a real mess during meal times. It starts with the way she eats her sandwhich; Everything has to be taken to bits and will be everywhere, besides on her plate. Second thing is, that she does a few bites and says "done"and pushes the plate and her cup away. Everything else on the table gets moved aswell by that. You allways have to watch out, or things will fall of the table. Then she plays a bit, takes back the plate and here we go again: "done!"...
But the one thing that really pushes my buttons is when she looks at me and then throws food onto the floor.
Of course I tell her of and say that it's naughty, but she does not care (would you at 21 month old?) So my question is: What immediate action can I take to teach her that it's wrong and unwanted behavior? You know, cause - effect. Straight away. Done something wrong - Get punished.
