hello Indus ladies, First of all my apologies for a long mail. I am working mom of 2 yr old Son. I used to leave him in day care daily, feed him breakfast for ½ hour and come back to Office. My son is a very picky eater and hence I used to take 2/3 dishes so that he can eat 2 bites from each of those. Most of his morning breakfast will be done by just 4 bites and so lunch , dinner. His schedule used to be: 8.30 Breakfast from me Milk 11.30 Lunch at Day care Milk 3.30 Snack (Gold fish etc) Milk Hence somebody told me that he s drinking too much and hence he s not eating. So decided to stop the milk that he is drinking the morning 9.00 AM but still he does not do good with his food. He does not like paruppu saadham, curd rice, yogurt, sundakadalai which means he does not like proteineceous foods. He eats chicken pieces, plain white rice with nothing added, plain ghee, butter. He does not eat properly in the night also, he gets 2/3 times for milk in the night. I did try to make him sleep without giving milk but I lost. When he is not eating, I get anger and beat him. I Know its wrong, but I cannot take it as it s happening most of the days. Also he s so naughty at home, breaking all electronics stuffs. His father gets angry more easily than me and scolds him, beats him. Am worried a lot because of this too. My questions to <?xml:namespace prefix = st1 ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-comffice:smarttags" /><st1lace w:st="on">Indus</st1lace> ladies are: 4 How do I make my child to eat well? 5 What is the quantity of food, a 2 yr old will be taking? Since he never ate good, I could not guage it. 6 How do I control my anger? Is it good to get anger and beat kid? Will it affect him? 7 His father gets angry and scolds in bad tamil words at me. When he listens that, does he get affected mentally? Am eagerly waiting for your advices. Please ….
