This is information from Ellyn Satter, an RD who is well known for her idea of the Division of Responsibility in eating and removing power struggles from the table. Both of the blog posts here have a lot of information you might consider. http://mealtimehostage.com/tag/ellyn-satter/ One thing is that the idea of a timer is for you - to keep you from getting to exasperated. The other is that it is okay to take your time at the table.
