Welcome to The Nourished Child podcast, a show about childhood nutrition, feeding kids, and dealing with the ups and downs of raising healthy ones, inside and out.

Jul 2, 2020

What do you say to your child when he refuses to eat? When he throws a tantrum because what you served for his meal isn’t what he wants to eat? Or, what do you say when your child keeps asking for more food?

In my work over the years with parents, the question of what to say, or how to respond, comes up a lot. Parents don’t want to be the NO GUY or GAL all the time. I get it. I don’t want to say no all the time either. So, how can you say no without saying that word?

AND, how can you do this while expressing empathy for your child, set up and hold the line on expectations, and keep a cool head?

It’s not easy – but it is possible.

This episode is for you if you have a hard time saying no, or feel guilty saying no. You’ll get my 3 go-to responses to kids (and why they work), so you can hold limits and boundaries without feeling guilty.

And if mealtime battles are a reality in your house, check out my 2-hour workshop called Eat in Peace. It’ll help you get over the hump with family-style meals, manners training, and realistic expectations for everyone at the table (including mom and dad!). You can register for that over at jillcastle.com/eat-in-peace.

Remember, I’ll be back in the fall with live shows! Until then, I hope you enjoy this episode
