DD (3) didn't want to eat her breakfast this morning, even though she was the one who picked what she wanted. She told me her tummy was full. I said ok, but their will be no snacking until lunchtime. She just asked me for Dora fruit snacks. I told her no, but if she wanted to eat cereal (what she had chosen for breakfast) she could eat that, but nothing else until lunchtime. She is now in her bed throwing a mad fit.
Do you think it is ok to tell a 3 year old that they can't have a snack if they didn't eat their breakfast? I'm not going to let her go hungry, but I don't want her to think that she can just skip a meal and eat whatever she wants after.
I'm just feeling bad listening to her cry. I'm a softy and I am really trying to not let the girls wrap me around their little fingers. Dh says I'm way too easy on them.
