"BITES FOR YEARS" RULE

Thursday, June 10, 2010

LISA WHELCHEL(BLAIR FROM THE FACTS OF LIFE)
WROTE MANY BOOKS. HER FIRST BOOK ENTITLED
CREATIVE CORRECTION IS SUCH A GREAT TOOL FOR
PEOPLE WITH KIDS OR GRANDCHILDREN!

AS I READ HER BOOK IT HAS MANY GREAT HEALING
IDEAS TO HELP RAISE CHILDREN WITH ENTHUSIASM.
ONE IDEA FROM HER TOOLBOX ON EATING...

"I'M NOT HUNGRY!" EVER HEAR THAT AT MEALTIME?
YOU COULD TAKE THEM AT THEIR WORD AND REFUSE
TO SERVE SNACKS UNTIL THE NEXT MEAL. OR YOU
COULD IMPLEMENT THE "BITES FOR YEARS" RULE.

THEY HAVE TO EAT AS MANY BITES OF FOOD ON THEIR
PLATES AS YEARS THEY HAVE BEEN ALIVE. THE TINIER
THE BODY, THE LESS THEY REALLY NEED ANYWAY! emoticon

AND MANY, MANY MORE GREAT CREATIVE IDEAS TO
HELP YOU IF YOU HAVE RAN OUT OF YOUR OWN CREATIVE
IDEAS! HEY, I THINK SOME OF THE TOOLBOX IDEAS COULD
BE USED ON MY HUSBAND! emoticon

    That's pretty awesome. I'm totally going to use that when I do have kids. It probably woulda gotten me to eat my veggies more when I was younger. lol
