That no child will starve themselves. I hate hate hate it! My two year old is proof that this simply is not true. He had been hospitalized twice for sheer weakness as well as dehydration.

Soooo......a child will starve himself (or herself). My son had gone a week without eating a bite. It's scary :-(

I just really hate hearing that comment!

An otherwise healthy child with no delays or medical issues will not starve themselves.
