So anyways I’ve been on here less, simple because my little girl has been demanding a LOT of my attention, which I’m more than happy to give, she’s my world, but lately she’s been refusing meals at random, I think I know why, but just seeking your thoughts, oh, ironically it’s time to feed her NOW (hope she doesn’t refuse lol)

The title reminded me of one memory.

When I was little, it took 2-3 hrs for my mom to feed my meal.

One day my dad got so irritated that he scolded me and I cried and vomited everything. My mom scolded him for running her efforts. My dad did not interfere ever again .

Two things. First, there is an age where this happens with just about every child. Persistence helps.

Second, there is a piece of "life advice" I frequently give that comes from this. I call it "the two-year old's dilemma". Basically you never ask a child "are you going to eat your peas?" Because you are allowing them to say no. Instead, you ask "are you going to eat peas or carrots" which lets them decide what to eat, not if they will eat.

Now I realize your daughter may be young for this one, but keep it in mind. Oh, and the same thing works with executives of large companies...
