I'm on skype to my sister, for ages she has been saying how she can't get her 2 year old dd to eat, she barely eats a thing, she had the health nutritionist round and everything

Well. just now her dd goes "mommy, I hungry"

Ok, sister goes gets the baby some raisins

She hands them to the child and she pours them on the floor. My sister lost it shouting "NO *babies name* DON'T"

She then proceeds to putting the baby into her room, where she screams and screams and screams and scream

my sister went in there countless times demanding the 2 year old to apologise, when she wouldnt she leaves, a half hour of this and I cant take no more, if I offer advice she gets funny because she is older and aparantly knows best! gah!

i'm sorry, when your kid doesnt eat any way, you don't tell them off and punish them like that with in 2 seconds of her having food!

Vent over!

If my child dumps food on the floor, yes, I will discipline them, have them apologize, and have them clean up the mess. Two years is old enough to know better. So she put her in timeout and wants an apology, why is that such a big deal. Her child isn't going to have an adversion to food because she gets in trouble for dumping it on the floor.

sad. that poor kid. my mom was a yeller too. I bet if your sister had the baby sit in a designated spot, not walk around eating, the kid would learn better discipline when it comes to eating.

Actually my DS sees several specialist for eating issues and what not.  I was specificly told by the Dr that you set (exp 30 minute meal times) times and places to eat and the child doesnt eat outside of those times.  They have to learn that they cannot snack all day etc.  Now my boy gets a pediasure when he wont finish or even touch his food but that is to just keep his weight balanced.She will start to get the hint soon or have a stomach ache.

Why wouldn't you discipline your child for dumping food on the floor?

I think the issue is not that OP disagrees with disciplining the child for dumping food on the floor, but for HOW and WHEN she is doing it and to what degree - It seems a little excessive to keep a 2 year old in their room and overreact in the manner described just because she dumped raisins on the floor. I could, however, be wrong :-) I don't know everything, that is for damn sure!

It's not not disciplining, it's getting the kid to actually eat a bit of food first, this kid  eats nothing all day, tell her to pick it up. help her even, then encourage to eat... tell her we dont dump food on the floor.... encourage her to eat... SHE DOESNT EAT! THATS THE POINT. THE KID DOESNT EAT. WHY WOULD YOU TELL A CHILD OFF THAT DOESNT EAT RIGHT BEFORE THEY ARE ABOUT TO? and guess what? the kid still hasnt eaten a single raisin
