When I sit my son down for a meal he usually doesn't want it and after awhile I will get him out of his booster and let him go back to playing. Depending on how wiggly/whiny he is and how interested he is in his food, this could be anywhere form 15-30 minutes. Hubby thinks this is to long and he should only have to sit for at most 5 minutes. Thoughts?
It's unreasonable to expect a toddler to stay seated until everyone is finished eating. As soon as you see that your son is uninterested in eating I would let him down. It is a parents obligation to serve a nutritious meal and it is the child's decision to determine how much he wants to eat. Mealtime should be a pleasant experience for all. www.filedby.com/author/linda_griffin/1127154/
