    Fifteen minutes is forever to a small child (unless it’s only fifteen minutes until bedtime, that is)!

    For a little girl who talks baby talk, she just said something pretty erudite..

    @SUSAN NEWMAN: You’re up very early. I couldn’t sleep, so I took the pill I’m supposed to take one hour before I eat anything and 4 hours before I can take my calcium.

    Fifteen minutes till dinner is a long time for me too!

    but if you wait out the 15 minutes and then sit down to eat either #1 you will enjoy the food even more, or #2 you will find that you really weren’t hungry, just bored…….in any case give her a drink of water, that will help fill up any empty spots.

    I usually give my children a piece of fruit or some water when this happens. I’ve also started cooking a little earlier so it doesn’t happen as often.

    Lynn’s Notes:
    When a kid is hungry, no explanation for why one should wait will curb the appetite. A kid wants to eat NOW. Dinner time for us was always at 6 o’clock when Dad came home. Nothing was allowed beforehand because it would spoil our appetite. Many a dinner was already “spoiled” because I had to wait so long to eat it!

    I wish my tummy could learn to tell time. It would make things way easier.

    If she’s hungry before a meal, some low sodium vegetable juice is good; I see that Mom has her coffee ;-)

    Happens almost every day at our place. Sometimes the little fruit or veggie snack works, but usually they’ll say NOOOO! They want something good and filling, RIGHT NOW!
    Nice observation, DAZZ, that Mom has her coffee. A little hypocrisy there?

    I would say give her a few grapes or something…that 15 minutes is going to be a lot longer with her whining!!

    @DAZZ

    How do we know it’s coffee? It could be water or milk…I often drink both out of teacups.
