Dinner was ROUGH in my house tonight. My DD, who has been 2 since March, wouldn't sit down at the table. So I asked her if she wanted to sit down or go to time out. She actually took herself to her time out spot. I tried again to get her to sit down. Back to time out. This happened a few times, until I physically put her in the dinner chair. She cried. Then refused to eat. I eventually finished my plate, finished feeding my 9 month old and put them both in the tub. Is it realistic to think that if she is hungry, she'll eat what I made? Or if she doesn't, she has to go to bed hungry? Is she too young for these expectations?
Thanks, I know this is a little long.

Next time, don't force her to sit at the table. She'll eat if/when she's hungry. You expectations are OK.
