Re: Impulse control and sweets

Please stop punishing him for eating things that the adults who have total control over the grocery scene keep stocking and making accessible.

Learn how to prepare healthier options together and only stock what is acceptable to eat and that actually nourishes your bodies.

It may cause the rest of the family to have to choose healthier items, too, unless you're willing to put all of that stuff under lock and key and out of sight.

A good chance for the adults to lead by example through their own choices and help work WITH him to create tasty nurturing stuff that's not harmful.

Win/win vs. continually setting yourself and him up for failure by fighting a losing battle.
