Sitting at the dinner table

As a young child, I spent many nights sitting at the dinner table until bedtime in front of a plate of something I didn’t like.

For some parents, telling a child they must sit there until they finish their meal works. From my experience I can tell you it doesn’t work on every child.

If you do try this approach, I’d suggest you keep in mind the degree to which the child dislikes something – and also the stubbornness of the child.
