There is something that always bugs me especially over the weekend and when it involves food and my eldest Jovial, it has in a way put some strain on our bonding, advice needed, help sought and so the story goes......................
My Jovial at 13 is the shortest in the class, therefore i have always worried that he is not eating well and not excercising enough, i am afraid that it may in a way stunt his growth. May be you might say i am presurring him into growing up in the expectation of mine, that is he is to be tall and handsome. I agree i love to see him tall rather than short.
I feel very frustrated especially over the weekend, he wakes up, he chooses to skip breakfast, during lunch , when i ask him if he is hungry, most of the time the standard reply,"Not hungry yet" and this bugs me to the bone. I feel bad when it gets to me and i raised my voice at him," ok fine, no need to eat untill when and when"
Everytime when i ask him to take fruits and vitamin, he would always answer," wait ", sometimes i feel so frustrated at his behaviour as far as his eating habit is concerned.
I shared with my friend and most of them telling me that i didn't not have to worry about it,naturally when his time comes, he wil wallop untill i get scared but i have my fear for if he is not eating well, even his time comes can it spur his growth, i just wonder.
Any advice to share?
