My daughter s 6 year old girl, she likes to do things on her own and while eating on her own, she would say I don't want this that.. if we say u should eat, she changes her mind but kind of forcefully.. if we say go and do how u like.. she would say no give me, it's okay give me.. this is an example of food.. but she does almost like this only for all work.. why.. and how to change this .

I can understand your concern. Kids are kids they need to be guided in the right direction. Its good that you are able to convince your daughter but do it in positive manner. Don't force it on her instead positively reinforce her whenever she does something good. Always try to give her choices be it related to food or clothes or study or play. For example, would you like to have food now or 10 min later or would you like to eat an apple or mango. Giving her choices will help her to stay focused and she will not feel that youbare forcing her into doing things your way and feel independent as well. Take Care
