Hi,my name is Kristy and I have a two yr old Brooke.She is such a drama queen and diva.Always has to have her way and throws one heck of a temper tantrum when she's told no.Both of us are virgos and we are both strong willed,stubborn,and impatient.She is a very picky eater so it is so hard to decide what to fix her to eat.What she likes one day,she might hate the next.Plus she's at the age where she's going through separation anxiety and she has issues everyday at the babysitters where shes been going to for months and even going over to family and friends house.Any ideas?

If you see this, leave this form field blank.

Trust me,I do the fruit snack thing,I do time out in a chair for 2 min or if its really bad in her bed in her room.I dont give in.I'm pretty tough on that because I was a wild child as a kid and never had consequences and I only got worse as I got older.I do give in unfortunately with food because I want her to eat,but I wont allow junk food when she wants it though because my 7 yr old is overweight.So I try to be healthy as much as possible but she is very picky and it drives me crazy sometimes.Especially because I'm a single mom and I also have a 6mth old boy and my 7yr old daughter.It just makes things more complicated with all her normal 2 yr old issues.I just cant wait for her to grow out of it.Everyone tells me to make her eat it or let her go without but thats so hard.I found she does like broccoli and cheese,but she likes something one day and not the next.2 yr olds are so difficult,LOL.Thanks for the advise,Kristy

Well my daughter also throws fits. Like when she cannot walk around the store and has to ride in the cart. Her father doesn't like it but I just ignore it because if I don't I won't get anything done. Sometimes all they want if you to give them that attention even if it is negative.

So I guess my advice for you is when you are home to send her to her room or bed for 2 minutes or until she is done crying don't yell at her because she is in her room and keeps crying. She will eventually just give up and one day she will realize that all that crying is not worth it. As for when you are out and about just don't give into it and don't buy her something to get her to be quite. I would carry some fruit snacks or some kind of snack that she does like to eat.

As for the food. I will not make a second meal for my daughter. She may not be hungry at the moment or hungry that day. So I would wrap it up and save it for later if she is really hungry she will eat it. It seems mean but it works. Also kids loves cheese on their veggies. I do the cheese out of a can on broccolli and parm cheese on green beans. Pea I put some garlic powder on them.



I hope that this we able to help you out!
