Ds is 26 months, and sometimes he just totally ignores me when I am asking him a question, and it makes me nuts!
Today was a perfect example: We were eating a bowl of soup together - I was holding it and feeding him spoonfulls, and he was kind of playing inbetween. At one point I ask him if he wants another bite. No answer. I ask again, "Do you want any more soup?" No answer. So I get up to put it away, and he starts crying and yelling "no no no", chasing after me. I hate to then give it back to him, because I feel like it's giving into him throwing a fit, but then again I don't want to withhold food, or anything else actually, that he really wants. But I do think he needs to learn that he can't just ignore me without a natural consequence.
He does stuff like this all the time and it makes me want to scream. How do you handle it?
