Not About Food 25

Food as a reward/punishment

Jonishkc | Apr 18, 2014 09:17 PM

My DH and I both have struggled with food/weight/body image issues. We both were raised with families that saw food=love. Also, the clean plate club, no X until you clean your plate.
We now have a beautiful and amazing 3 YO niece. (No, really) We don't have human kids, by choice.
DH has had a conversation with the dad and the nana about forcing/bribing said princess to eat.
How do we help this little one not have our issues?
