my daughter (2 1/2) eats fine for me during the day (i try to focus on her overall food intake during the day). HOWEVER, when she is w/ her dad (we're separated), she refuses to eat. it's becoming a horrible food struggle between them (we have 50/50 custody, so we're talking abt 1/2 the wk, it's a battle for him to get her to eat).
last night, he sent her to bed w/o dinner b/c she didnt want the casserole my ex-MIL made for dinner. he refuses to make her another dinner b/c he says she needs to "learn" to eat whatever he puts before her. [i disagree...but we have very different parenting styles.]
what can i do? any tricks that i can pass along to him to help w/ this struggle? i don't want this dinnertime battle to affect either claire's relationship w/ her dad or the way she views food/eating...
