I had a blazing row with my ex last night which started over our 4 year old daughter's eating habits. I arrived to pick her up and the ex says "she will have to bring her dinner to your house. She has sat in front of the tv playing with it for 20 minutes." So of course I replied "then turn the tv off."
I don't think kids should eat in front of the tv. I think they should sit at the table and eat with their parent(s). I also don't agree with her getting a treat after every meal if she eats more than a few mouthfuls. To my mind eating your dinner isn't a chore that deserves reward, eating is a part of everyday life.
Anyway, I am now a complete heartless bastard apparently. So are my views too extreme?
