Interested in buttered bread for Christmas dinner? No, not an appetizer. It’s a complete meal. At this point, you’re probably scratching your head for all the sins you committed that year. But if you’re an ungrateful and spoiled little brat who isn’t really that small anymore, that’s where you end up.
I know I’m ahead, but I know what will happen. But you will soon, don’t worry about anything. Reddit user Suspicious-Cat1021 I shared my Christmas dinner experience on subreddit r/AmIthe[Jerk]details a very simple circumstance that turned a celebratory gathering into a frustrating one for all involved.
When faced with such a situation, one man wondered if they had done the right thing.

To become a devil’s advocate, let’s take a look at all aspects of the situation we are currently facing.
where to start likes and dislikes actually mean. Kathryn Walton and colleagues Picky/picky eating is defined as an unwillingness to eat familiar foods or to try new foods that are severe enough to interfere with daily life in problematic ways. Between 14% and 50% of parents perceive their preschool children to be picky eaters.
Children can have different likes and dislikes for many reasons.as discussed UCSF Benioff Children’s Hospitalsome children are naturally sensitive to tastes, smells, and textures of food, making the experience of eating even more bizarre.
But it’s never just the kids’ fault. After all, parents are primarily responsible for feeding their children. Some children model their picky eating habits on their parents’ picky eating habits. Also, when parents punish, bribe, or reward their children for their eating habits, they are more likely to develop certain eating habits.
Research published in American Academy of Pediatrics They found that if parents do not nip the behavior in the bud early enough, picky and dislikes persist. I understand. So emotional intelligence also plays a big role.

The most commonly agreed advice from experts for picky parents is not to prepare a separate meal for your child. The family menu should not be limited to children’s favorite foods. let your child eat what you eat (obviously no choking hazard). If your child chooses to skip a meal or snack, they may wait until their next scheduled meal.
Additionally, there are some red flags in this story that need to be addressed. Mainly the rude behavior of the children and the neglect of mothers in disciplining them. Dr. Tracy Baxley He argues that in order to teach children compassion, we need to start saying “no” from time to time.
Giving consequences to unhealthy behaviors supports their ability to see situations from different perspectives, and teaching children to be grateful when they don’t get everything they want helps them grow. is an important element of
You may think they are inattentive, but children are very attentive to how you react to situations. It made me feel unhealthy.
Mothers of children seem to accept the fact that their children want to eat certain meals and continue to do so. feed their unhealthy diet By preparing everything yourself in someone else’s house.
Mothers of 18 and 15 years old can’t seem to agree with their children’s development as it is not normal for them to have to keep making special meals for them when they are visiting family. So in this case, bringing an already prepared meal for the whole family to share at dinner was a good compromise.
