She is not listening to her mom, and not eating well. Can you be more specific about her attitude with her mother? As far as diet, 5yo can be very picky eaters and can be very stubborn. They also, can seem to survive on hardly anything! If your sister puts a few healthy choices in front of her, she can pick from what is offered, or go without. If she chooses not to eat at mealtime, put the plate away and when she complains she is hungry, put the plate back out. As long as she is healthy in general, she will not starve. It may seem like it, but she will eventually eat. Is it only her mother that she seems to ignore?
