"No Thank You!" Helping

When my children were younger I instituted a "no thank you" helping when there was something for dinner they just didn't like.  They had to take a little tiny bit and try to eat even a little of it.  I knew there would be times when they would be somewhere else and would have to eat things they weren't crazy about, and I thought this would help.

Later, several of our children told me that they were glad I had taught them about the "no thank you" helping when they had to eat something they didn't like somewhere!  Christa certainly utilized this training in Hong Kong!

Challenge:  Try to have a little no thank you helping when your child doesn't like something for dinner.  They may thank you someday!
