My 5.5 year old daughter chews and chews but refuses to swallow. When we insist on her to swallow she gets tensed more and still swallowing becomes a very tough task for her. I think she is scared that food gets choked and she will puke out. But I'm not sure of the exact reason. I and her father however keep on telling her that swallowing is easy, and that she should not have her food for long time as it causes cavities. But she doesn't seem to change. Her school teacher is complaining me that she has a weird problem and asking me to check with her doctor. They are getting irritated with her that she is taking very long time to eat. Some of her friends and cousins are laughing at her that she doesn't know to even eat. Pls give me some suggestions.
