My son Billy who has special needs has a little brother that's a picky eater. He goes to Grandma's or Momom's and he eats anything or everything! Then he's at home and only wants to eat certain things, even when I try to make something he likes he says no or I don't like that. I'll admit we don't really eat at the dinner table like we should, because my other son needs one on one help 24/7 and he has a g-tube, he can't eat himself. We've tried to have a normal dinner at a dinner table, but it doesn't seem to work out except maybe 2 or 3 times a year, if that. I just don't know what to do anymore? We try to have a semi-formal life for Billy's little brother, but its hard sometimes. My son Billy is 8 yrs old and had severe Cerbal Palsy and my other son is 4 yrs old and healthy/normal. I don't want to seem like I'm blaming my kids, but i don't know what to do anymore? Does anyone else out there have this prblem? What can you do? How?
