Hi Jagruri how old is your son? Is he very tired or sleepy at dinner time? If he is sleepy he will not have energy to eat by himself. In that case serve his dinner early. If that is not the case then try to wean him slowly.... like you may say that eat roti by yourself first and then I'll feed u rice... or finish half your food first then I will feed you rest. Slowly he'll start eating by himself.

Hi jagruri, the only way it works is that you become a little strict and tell him that mumma is not going to feed you anymore and you need to manage your own meals. If he ddoesn't eat, let him go hungry but do not give in to any crying. when he will go hungry, he will understand that mumma means business and will eat on his own. You can sit with him but let him eat on his own. Also ensure, he has meals with you and the family. when chidlren see others eating around them, they tend to pick up the cues.
