I've done everything... I've given him what he wants even if it means mushroom soup for breakfast, i've tried not letting him leave the table till he's done, I've tried keeping his supper out and only offering that if he gets hungry later and asks for a snack... I've tried disciplining him by sending him to his room until he is ready to sit and eat and even sending him to bed early.... i'm at a loss as to what to do... it's not like he's frail and unhealthy - the doctors say he's a healthy happy boy, it's just that I can't take him to a family dinner without some kind of comment from a grandparent or family member about how little he eats and how he should sit at the table till everyone is done.... did I mention that he will be 3 in april? His attention span is limited and my patience is getting smaller too... suggestions?
