This morning DS (4 1/2yrs) took half hour to eat his breakfast (did not finish there were about 4-5 mouthfuls left). I struggle most mornings to get him to eat his breakfast, it is his breakfast of choice though. This morning I said to him if he didnt finish his breakfast before it was time to go he would not have time to choose 'show and tell' as he ate right up until 8:45 when we had to leave. We then left, I said he couldnt choose show and tell as he took too long eating his breakfast and didnt finish therefor didnt have time to choose any as we had to leave. He was very uncooperative and would not put shoes on and I pretty much had to drag him to class.
I am now feeling bad for not letting him take 'show and tell' as most of the other kids take it along. should I feel bad or is this hopefully going to pay off and teach him to eat his breaky faster? (I would have thought 1/2 was more than enough time to eat 2 weetbix)
please feel free to offer any honest advice or personal experience
