i have a 23 month old and every single time i try to eat something he wants it. i don't mind sharing, but if he has HIS snack and i have MY snack i just feel like he has to deal and eat HIS snack. I don't mind putting things in a big bowl and "sharing" but sometimes, like with cheese sticks, its just not convenient to do that! So when's a good time to start teaching kids that sometimes they can't eat everything they want when they want it? And how do I go it? SUGGESTIONS PLEASE! I just want to eat my cup of pineapples without people reaching for it and yelling "Mine!"Answer Question

Just give him the same snack you're eating or just don't snack the same time he does.
Parenting is a selfishless act and it didn't brother me one bit.
