Don’t Kill Them

True parenting advice from Ijeoma Oluo:

As he gets older, there will be times where just trying to get him to take a bite of his fucking food will be a battle. You will want to pry his mouth open with one hand, and shove the food down his throat with the other. Don’t do this.

These days if the boys don’t want to eat, I honor their wish. They just have to stay starving until the next meal. One issue solved.
