Parent Talk: Baby Food Fights
We’re having a tough time with our 21-month-old daughter, who loves to throw her food on the floor every night at dinner. We give her a time out after a couple of warnings, and then it starts all over as soon as she is put back in her chair. After going through the same routine the other night, one of us had a long conversation with her and she sat and listened, and then threw the food again as soon as it was in front of her. After one more time out she stopped doing it but definitely was not in a good mood for the rest of the night (not to mention that we were running later than usual due to the frequent time out interruptions).
Does this sound at all familiar? If so, do you have any suggestions?
