Would you do this or tell your kid no?

He likes a new fork or spoon for every item of food. I humor him when I can, which is most of the time but if I can't he doesn't get upset at all.

Would you humor your kid and give him a different utensil for every item if he wanted or would you say no?

I would probably say no but that's just me.  If it works for you then that's cool and I have no place to judge!  :)

No. Ill give him an extra napkin to use to wipe it off but id never have enough forks or spoons for everyone. Especially f then all kids want to follow suit.

I would say no. But my brother and I grew up doing that; and we became extremely ocd. A new fork and plate for every food item; a new glass for every time we refilled our cups. I'm better now; most of the time. But my brother still has those quirks

What does it hurt, besides a few extra dishes? I would do it too. I try to pick my battles with my children.

I would say no because the longer you let that kinda stuff go, the harder it is to break.

Since I have enough to wash already; no. But that's nice you humor him.

I would say no. More for me to clean and then he would want it every time.
