my son is 5 yrs and 5 months old. he does not like to eat by himself. he refuses to eat with a spoon also. if I tell him I won't feed him, he refuses to eat all together and can ho hungry. he wants to be fed when he is at home or when ever I or his grandmother are present with him. in school he does eat on his own. how do I get him to eat each of his meals by himself. also he is in the habit of thumb sucking since te day he was born. I tried hard to get him to stop but he does not stop at all. when he is at home and relaxing in front of the tv or sleeping he sucks his thumb. at school he does not suck his thumb, but has picked a habit of biting anything and everything like pencil ends, Id card corner etc.
