Have your children ever went to sleep without dinner?

Whether it was for a punishment, or you didn't have any food to feed them or something else?




I've had a few nights where my children just DIDN'T want dinner, tonight, my kiddos didn't nap at all today and so they were tuckered out, They both went to bed without dinner. But it was by choice, They both asked to goto sleep and to bed without dinner. They had Breakfast and Lunch and snacks today of course. I know they wont starve to death or anything, But I still feel bad they didn't eat lol.

Sometimes my almost two year old doesnt eat dinner. I won't force her to if she's not hungry.

Occassionally, if they're exhausted.

My youngest will sometimes just fall asleep wherever she is, before I even finish cooking. 

I've never needed to use it as a punishment.

 Only when they are sick and crash out. We have had situations where they have snacked so much on fruit, yogurt etc. that became dinner.

My ds was 3 and throwing a fit because he wanted something other than what I made. So I made him go to bed without dinner and before bedtime I instantly regretted it. We had to rush him to the emergency room and found out he has hypoglycemia. He was hospitalized for a few days.

I had never in my life felt more like a piece of shit

No. I've never been out of food and they've never been too sick or sleepy to eat something.  They may not eat as much as usual if they're sick, but they always eat something.

Only when they are really sick.
