s/o of the "do you make them eat everything on their plate" post
Answer anonymously if you would like, but please answer honestly (of course I imagine many won't anyway, lol).
Of those who DO make their children eat everything on their plates, how many of YOU are overweight (as adults)?
It's been my experience that those who have this policy are generally overweight themselves and believe that "mommy knows best" (in so far as when a child should and shouldn't be hungry and/or full).
ETA: If you were forced to finish everything on your plate as a child, are you overweight now?
I am a Home Schooling, Vaccinating, Non spanking, Nightmare Cuddling, Dessert Giving, Bedtime Kissing, Book Reading, Stay at Home Mom. I believe in the benefit of organized after school activities and nosy, involved parents. I believe in spoiling my children. I believe that I have seen the village and I do not want it anywhere near my children. Now for the controversial stuff: we have traditional gender roles, we're Catholic, I'm Libertarian, he's Republican, we're both conservative, and we own guns (now there's no need to ask, lol). Aimee
