See what CafeMoms are saying about saving time this holiday season..
My five year old son has developed a bad habit lately and I want to break him of it. He will refuse food at dinner time and then say he is hungry later, after everyone else is done eating. I have tried denying him when he does that, but I end up caving in because I don't want him to go to bed Hungry. We have been staying with a friend of mine for the past month while I find our own house. I was transferred for work the beginning of March and haven't found a place our own yet. I am thinking this food thing is a reaction to all the changes, but it is difficult to deal with one child wanting to eat later because then my friends kids want to eat again later. I tried getting snacks and keeping them in our room, but he "shared" with everyone while I was at work and now the snacks are gone. I can't wait til I get moved so I can get m back on a schedule!
