Sorry about that! This laptop is so stupid .... anyway just need a little advice ! I am so tired of my kids wasting food , so I always TELL them how there are poor people in the world that do not have the luxuray of having a fidge or grocery stores or even a kitchen . So they continue to do ... so today I went online and looked up images on google and brought up pictures of the proverty in Africa. I dont think my daughter completely understood what I was showing her. Of couse im not really excepting it to work I just thought that mabey her seeing it would ? BAD OR GOOD idea? And please any suggestions to this will be helpful.

 When I get there plates together I always give them small amounts and they usually eat it , if not then no bedtime snack is the rule. But through out the day , like today for instance my daughter and son both  grabbed  a banana and didnt finish it all . It irritates me bc food is so expensive.

I don't think that's really going to help any.  Kids are pretty self-centric and aren't going to think about hungry kids in other countries when they're eating or throwing away their leftovers.

At least they chose healthy snacks. ;)

I definitely think it was a fine idea to try but I'm not sure it's going to work. My parents did that with us and it definitely didn't work. Good luck though.
