so my friend is having some discipline and manners issues with her 4 year old. she has never made her daughter say her pleases and thank yous and always given in to her every demand and now wonders why her daughter is so damn rude.
anyway, she posted on FB yesterday that she was over it, she made breakfast for her daughter who wouldn't even try a bite and made her sit there til she would. she said an hour went by and her daughter screamed and cried the whole time. but, she paid no attention to her, as to not give in to her "negative attention" pleas.
isnt she giving her negative attention by making her sit there? the fact taht she has to constantly check to see if she's eaten and noticing she hasn't, then getting upset, is negative correct? when i get into food battles with my 4 year old, i let her get up but also tell her she's not getting anything else til this is finishes or til the next mealtime.
