into it by telling him he has a choice to make...eat,, or go to bed without the TV on and no lights.
Typically he watches a little TV while he's in bed then goes to sleep (bad habit I know that)...After my son starts to eat DH tells me I shouldn't scare him (our 5 yr old) like that and should just make some french toast. I AM NOT COOKING TWICE FOR ONE MEAL.
My husband does not intervene when it comes to my son acting up. He leaves everything to me then afterwords judges my choices rather then be apart of them. It's like I'm a single parent and he just watches and throws his opinion at me afterwords.
So is it so wrong to tell my son, "If you don't eat you can just go to bed now w/out TV"

I don't think that is out of line at all. If it makes him eat then that what I would do. And I do not recommend cooking twice for one meal. I will make them a PBJ sandwich if I make something I know they really really don't like but other than that no way! And shame on your husband for not helping you out. I would have a conversation with him about it and maybe you can work something out. Just let him know your feelings and maybe he will see your side of things. Good Luck Girl!
