Oh the tantrums . I wrote a post about this only a few weeks ago so can really feel your pain. My little man is 23 months old and has started to answer back already with the dreaded "NO" word. Everything seems to be a struggle and as for eating..don’t get me started. Think he thinks that food is a toy as he loves throwing it!!
Just using the bold step and find that ignoring him is best too. The more I make a fuss of him eating the more he won’t eat.
Oh the joys of motherhood!
