Snippy&amp &quot others who dont feed their kids&quot 
She gets lunch to school so yes I did put extra in today, I also said to the teacher that if she asks for food earlier to please give. She also refuses to get dressed and this is another fight.

So this morning I left it all. Eventually when I was ready to leave for work I said goodbye have a lovely day at home with the dog. You do not want to eat and you do not want to get dress and you refuse to brush hair and teeth so I guess you don' t want to go to school.

I said bye and closed the door behind me. Pulled the car out the garage and drove off, then pretended to remember something in the house, she stood by the door sulking. I said what' s your problem? Oh she wants to go to school, I said then you have 5 minutes to get ready. She rushed all was done and she grabbed a orange juice which she drank in the car.

I can only hope she' s seen that I will not fight one more day about this and that tomorrow morning is a better morning.

Some days are so bad she' ll take her clothes I' ve taken out and put them back in her cupboard and i' ll take them out and force dress her. Leave the room do something else calm down then come back in then do the school shoes and so it goes.

No more.

force dressing, etc., is really not the way to go. This new technique sounds like it might be more successful, report back on how it goes over the next few days.
