Take Your Time

Calm is important in this process in that the child can pick up on your "vibe"....frustration, anger, panic,etc... Making the mealtime as pleasant as possible is as important for the parent/caregiver as for the child. The other most important factor is time. Do not hurry while setting these new patterns. Take your time preparing, eating, visiting, enjoying the company of your family. Take the pressure of "hurry" out of your meals in order to make real progress.
