Sitting at Supper Strategies are strategies a parent can implement easily with a minimal level of pre-planning. Creating a ‘Choice Menu’ with your child is the first step and providing a visual conversation game is the second step.
My child is 5 years old and cannot sit through dinner with the family. He will jump up, come back take a few bites, if any bites at all, bang on the table, and sometimes just leave and play with his toys. We never have a peaceful family meal. Any suggestions?
