I have read the books, I think that I understand how I should behave as a meal time approaches and during the mealtime. But still I cant seem to keep meal times calm. First of all my daughter tries all sorts of distractions to try to delay eating and I know what she's doing but when I have challenged her on this she just gets very cross and then the whole meal time is very stressful and tearful. When the food is in front of her she behaves as if she is beaten. She drops her head and cuts the food up into tiny pieces the mealtime takes ages, She is always asking for huge glasses of water. From what I have read this is quite typical behaviour; but that doesn't make it any easier to deal with for me. Any tips?
