Family Dinner – Fowl Language Comics

Posted by on July 6th, 2015, under EXTERNAL USE ONLY

Fowl Language Comics   I really don’t understand this whole “raising children” thing. I use the “air quotes” because it feels like my version of parenting is false and just wrong. My older son is a VERY picky eater and the subject of fruits and vegetables is so contentious that I am almost at the […]

As they grow into full-fledged humans with preferences and tastes is a wonderful journey. Sure, sometimes it can be hell. Why won’t they eat the food you prepared?

Alternative Diets for Parents

Posted by on July 3rd, 2014, under INSTRUCTIONAL DIAGRAMS

The biggest problem with food is that it’s delicious and available. So, wouldn’t the overarching concept behind an effective diet be to reduce the amount of food available or to suppress the desire for it, or simply remove its deliciousness? Maybe not, but whatever, right?! If you choose the Kid-Made Diet, you’ll have no problem […]
