have to vent-anyone deal with this???
took 15 yr old son to supper tonight, was supposed to be with friends for a special meal. been talking about it all wk long-pumping him up to eat steak taters and corn-he was so excited to go too!! well friends jipped out on us (again) but he really wanted to go anyways.
get there, order super fast and he was very hungry. every time they brought steak out- he stole mine said his was brown and not gonna eat (in his nonunderstandable words to others) struggled with few bites then refused and kept stealing my new steak;ended up with 6 steaks altogether for just 2 (rest of kids no go & they kept over cooking)
i was getting so frustrated about him just chewing and not swallowing his food. he would chew then drink forever before swallowing. well his rule on chart is eat 1/2 supper (big fit happen with food). at 1/2 corn 3 fries and barely touches any steak (perhaps 2 from 1st one 4 from 2nd then 7 from 3rd one) just kept chewing chewing chewing.
do you think something else is going on with this (perhaps inability) or just was being stubborn? please this issue is going on for so long, need some advice before i lose my head
