pass the broccoli

with an hour left to go before i go home, i finally got my hands on the sunday paper. john rosemond's article this week echoed a problem i have at school- parents who cater to their children- especially when it comes to cuisine- read it here . i grew up hearing the phrase "i am NOT a short order cook. you will eat what is on your plate, and if you don't want that, here's a spoon to go dig up some worms." it amazes me how so many parents these days let the children dictate what they'll eat- if junior doesn't want the steak, mama throws together a few chicken nuggets. as a consequence, kids at school are notoriously picky eaters who refuse to touch anything that doesn't look like it came in a paper bag with games on the outside and a small prize within.

something to think about. i've got to get back to the paper before heading off to my temporary home for the next few days. (overnight babysitting for more than i make at any of my other jobs.) until later...........
