My 2 year old is at the 'tantrum throwing' stage right now especially when eating. Few weeks ago, he used to eat food without any problems and now all of a sudden he just doesnt want to eat anything. He does like chips(homemade), pasta etc but no other food like what I make as an Indian mom(very mild spicewise).
So I tried which i think is not good - I played a police siren on my phone from a distance and I asked him to eat by telling him if he doesn't eat it, policemen will come. He did finish everything on the plate which made me felt good because he ate healthy and nutritious food but on the other side, I felt horrible because it felt like he did it out of the fear.
Is that right? Am I a really bad mom? I don't want to scare him but at the same time, I want him to be healthy as well. What do I do?
