hi Juhi! he is seeking attention by doing so. once he will say 'No 'u will coax him to say yes,so basically he is doing so to get your response . u need to reframe your sentence and make sure there is no negative tone in it. supposedly u want him to eat something: call him politely, praise him for listening to u, gently pat on his back, kiss on his forehead. tell him baby we r going to eat a chapati with Dal and dahi and my baby will show me how he will get stronger with each bite. give a bite and enact how he's getting stronger. so a role play or any story or a game could make him happy and finish his food. praise him when he finishes. reward with a smiley. Juhi presentation matters the most with children . present with a negative statement and u would see them dread it. present the same thing with love and care , they would enjoy it. spend time with him playing, talking , teaching, and most importantly hug him often. I am sure u would see a change in him soon. tkcare!
