Love and Logic Goes to Dinner


An L&L mom sent me this story....

"Recently we were eating dinner and my daughter, 3, did not like it. She said she was done. I looked at my husband and said, "That's fine, but we won't be eating again until breakfast."

She sat down and looked back and forth between me and my husband. She slowly began to eat her food as we ignored her for a few minutes. Then she said, "if you love this dinner, raise your hand!" Carolyne raised her hand and finished her dinner, no questions asked!

Note: She sits well at dinner. She just never wants to eat. Then an hour later she wants chips and popcorn and throws a fit if she doesn't get it.

Thanks for sharing a Love and Logic story! (The cartune comes from Gary Olsen at http://www.dubuque.k12.ia.us/cartoons/ )
