When it's dinner time, I make a plate and set it at his spot. Lately though he wants us to hold him, while standing up, and feed him food. We absolutely put a foot down. We've tried a few things like taking down his booster seat and making it a "big boy" chair.
There's a transition issue from daycare to home and dinner is right then at 5-5:30. I told him I love to hold him but if he wants to eat his food, he has to sit down at the table. It's an all out tantrum. I then tell him I'm sorry but he can go to his room to cry and come out when he's happy.
I tried putting him at a smaller table, but the same thing. I'm not going to give in but I also feel bad because he does want his food (obviously not bad enough).
I know no child offered food will starve and I do believe he gets the predicament he's in. Anyone else had this issue? How long did it last with you?
