If you made dinner and your 8 year old thought it was gross and told you so, what would you say? I ignored, said something like fine don't eat it then, but she kept complaining and trying to put off ds aged 5. I tried to explain that it's not nice to tell your mum her food is gross but her reaction was "why not, you're just my mum?" Thoughts? Tip of the iceberg but DP thinks she's just a kid what's the big deal. I think we should be teaching them a bit of respect.
