Alix, I used to be an expert on kids (oldest of 10) until I had one.

Yeah it did, but my kids wouldn't touch it! I was shocked because I figured my son would have loved it!

oh, well, crewsk.
alix, some people DO have major control over thier kids. one family i know has 4 kids, one of whom is now in college, who have been completely vegan since they were born.
and my good friend has a kiddo who has yet to have tasted non-vegetarian food.
i know that when i was growing up, my parents set rules, and i followed them, and that was just the way it was. my parents controlled me, i didn't control them. not after i turned 3, anyhow.

luvs, I caught the reference the second time thanks though. Also, allowing your kids to make their own decisions about food does not imply they are out of control. Parenting is a very touchy area for folks and we all have different ideas of what is right. I think whatever works for you and your kids is great. I am not trying to tell you I am right, just trying for a little humour here...sorry if that didn't translate :oops:

parents do all have different ways of doing things, huh? oops! to each, his own. :o
yeah, my parents were strict in some aspects, but if i wanted to try something gross food-wise they let me. i still had to eat my dinner, though.

My dad tried a Jolt Cola when they first came out. He thought he was going to have a heart attack!
