  • its normal behavior for kids well @least all 4 of mine were like grandma said i was like that...she just made me small plates of fruit an healthy snacks that i could grab quickly until i learned to eat in
    as long as she takes a few bites an drinks dont when she wont move or eat then u worry..

  • its normal for my almost 3 year old - I don't know how others seem to do it without phsyically holding them there- he doesn't care if I throw his food away or he doesn't get snacks the rest of the night either

  • Normal in my expirience. Setting a firm restriction (once you are excused from the table...) is good but you have to be consistant.
