There has been many times ODD comes home from her dad's house and is saying she didnt get what she wanted to eat or she was forced to eat things she didnt like.
I have always told my kids you take a "thank you bite" and if you try it and do not like it will will figure something else out to eat. I remember in the WAAAAY beginning, SM told me she like peas or green beans, i said "he if you can get DD do like those, go for it" now DD LOOOOVES green beans, like she could eat a whole (salad) plate of them to herself.
But over the past almost 8years she has told me "my brother got string cheese and dad just yelled at me and I didnt get any" or "SM made me eat cottage cheese, and I hated it. Its icky. But i HAD to eat it." Again I tell her the rules that i've told BF also, you need to eat a "thank you bite" and go from there. There are more foods that she has had to eat there that she DOES not like. I mean what child likes cottage cheese. I never liked it till an adult.
How would you deal with it? Would you mention it?
