Having three children means that there are sure to be some meal time battles in the home. Whether it’s the oldest who all of a sudden doesn’t like something she has loved for years or the five year old who is convinced hot dogs are a vital part of the food chain or better yet the three year old who will lick something and say he doesn’t’ like it or flat out refuse to try dinner therefore going to bed without any dinner, it’s always an adventure here in my house during dinner time.
While I have never done anything as embarrassing as this mom shown above in the video did, I can say that I have tried to be creative. I can’t seem to think of anything I would call embarrassing, I usually just try to bribe the kids with fruit for dessert for eating their dinner. Basically dinner is the only meal that is not a choice for the kids, while breakfast and lunch are more of a “what do you want” type situation with a couple of choices provided, dinner is pretty much set in stone.
I cook what I cook and the kids are required to taste the food, if they determine they truly do not like it I probably would make something small for them, however, once the kids are able to try it they usually like it. The three year old is my biggest dinner challenger and as much as wearing spaghetti on my head like that would amuse him, I highly doubt it would work to get him to eat and if for some odd reason it worked – he would expect me to do it at every meal.
