Parenting Hack – Feeding a child who refuses to eat

March 3, 2013

Being the parent of a child in the terrible 2′s can be a daunting task; they are expressing the individuality and are testing the boundaries. My daughter was refusing to eat, it was just an act of defiance.

I then remembered something from the book the Art of War, take the middle ground. If she won’t eat food, maybe I could get her to just hold the food. Obviously, it should be something easy for a 2 year old to hold. In this case I used pancakes. I told her to help daddy by holding a pancake for me.

In a minute, she ate the pancake. I asked her to hold another one for me, and wouldn’t you know that she ate that one too!

So I hope this helps to feed your defiant 2 year old as well!
