Hi, My little girl is 5 years old. I find difficult to feed her. She takes 10 mts for each bite. I get angry all the time, shouting at her to chew fast. sometimes I get mad. I feed her and it takes more than an hour to finish her meal. I know getting anger will not help but wat to do, atleast it makes her to chew a bit faster. Give me some idea to handle the problem.

hi Maria! I completely understand your concern and agree with u that it gets frustrating at times . u could inculcate the habit of self feeding to the child.. by serving her meals on dining table. keep reminding her to finish politely and give her a home made sweet dish or flavored yogurt if she finishes fast. keep praising her to motivate her and also keep distractions away during mealtime. please ensure family members too follow the instructions and keep away gadgets. hope this helps
