how do i stop my child eating so much junk
Sit your wife down, put your foot down and say no more! When I was reading the post I thought you was going to eventually venture into he gets it from school, another family members house, neighbor, Granny/Grandpa, a close friends house or something. He's getting it from home, sir (or in this day and time ma'am). Stop buying so much at one time. If buying in bulk is cheaper, go shopping WITHOUT your children, buy a lock, put it in a tote, and lock it in YOUR bedroom closet, then put a lock on your bedroom door and you issue them out! Problem will be solved, at home anyway.
OR you can do like my mom did with me and my brother, take the kids with you to the store, buy in bulk, put them in the cupboard and DARE one of them to take anything out the kitchen without permission, and see what happens. Well... Don't do that, you'll probably be arrested for child threatening or some law they've passed that makes it illegal to discipline your children. Lol. And you know I'm telling you the truth. Lol.
Tho my mother was proactive with the snacks, we did get rather hefty off of soul food because we didn't leave the table until it was ALL gone. We had no room for snacks. Lol... Especially when she made field peas, yuck! I remember falling asleep at the table in front of those. But guess what, she'd come and tell me to go to bed for school around 8:30pm, mind you dinner was at 5pm. Lol.
The next morning, guess what was for breakfast, those same field peas I mashed up to make it look like I at some... lol... Long story short, I just said the hell with it and I'd gobble them down and chase it with the mac and chese, because we wasn't allowed to get our drink until all our food was gone. Now that should have been child abuse! Lol!
But anyways, I'm off subject! Bottom line, don't feel bad because your restricting junkfood, that's your job as a parent! And stop allowing your children to assume they can have what they want when they want, YOUR the ADULT and I'm sure the children dont pay any bills nor the grocery bill! You look them in the eye and say "you eat what I give you" lol... Well... Don't do that one either, they'll go to school and say they didn't eat and they'll come up to your job and arrest you for 27 counts of child neglect... LOL!
One thing my mom did that cut down on snacking and portion control. She allowed (made) us help her cook meals. Something about cooking makes you eat less, she'd always say. And to mm this day it's true! Hope I helped! Read More At : ...
