Has this topic been discussed on here already? Sorry if it has...I missed it.
If not, what is your opinion about sending a child to bed without any supper? Is it OK to do as punishment? Is it OK if they don't like what you have made for supper and don't want to eat it? Or in that case would you offer them an alternative?
Personally, I do not feel that is it OK as a punishment. I would think that is child abuse. My son is only 14 months so we haven't had any meal time troubles yet. But if he didn't want to eat what I made him, then I would probably at least make him a piece of toast or something before he went to bed.
