Here it is: when your kids are hungry and asking for a snack while you’re drying the dishes from supper. What the??!? We just ate four seconds ago. This seems to be the norm at my house lately.
Growing up, food was a big reward in my family. I know, that’s super healthy. It’s probably why I deserve to often “reward” myself with ice cream or McDonald’s coffee. Denying someone food or drink at my house growing up would have been straight-up abuse.
My daughter is constantly looking for food. She constantly wants something to eat. She gets it honestly. My son is always thirsty, and when he asks for a drink he is usually crying because he is the thirstier than he has ever been in his entire little life. I have often denied him a drink because I don’t want anybody wetting the bed.
Alright, parents. How do/did you deal with food/drink requests? When do you close the kitchen?
