I hate to have to be the nagger, but my husband doesn't seem to care if our son has any manners (especially at the table), and my MIL (lives with us) won't say anything. Do I just let it go or keep correcting it?Answer Question

first of all ...why would your MIL say anything??? you are the parent not her
since you are in the 5-8 age group I think you already know the answer to your question.....unless your child has a disability he should not be playing with his food. He should know his table manners and how to behave at the table.
I would start punishing him if he keeps it up . explain to him that from now on he must use his table manners or he will not get dessert, TV time, video time etc etc. Not all men 'get it' when it come to manners at the table. be strong and be firm

As long as he is eating and not flinging it around the dining room leave him alone. You are at home not in a restaurant.
