My 2-year-old son is refusing to eat dinner at night. I give him a choice, within reason, as to what he can eat at lunchtime, but at dinnertime I don't make anything extra. My husband and I are having many disagreements as to what we should do about this. My husband thinks that he should be forced to sit at the table with us until he eats, or at least until we finish dinner. My son just screams when this is done, and I don't feel that we're getting anywhere. I feel that if he isn't going to eat it, I'm not going to force the issue, but I don't reward this by giving him treats. What is the right way to handle this? Should I be offering him his dinner continuously throughout the evening if he gets hungry or offering him anything at all nutritious that he will eat?
