Simple tricks to satisfy picky eaters

Do you have a child who is a picky eater? If so, you may find the following, courtesy of Newspaper Metro, helpful.
I wish I would have thought about these clever techniques with my daughters years ago. However, to those of you with young children who are picky eaters, don’t lose heart. Your picky young eaters will grow up to enjoy different foods later in life. Take it from me, my two adult daughters are not nearly as picky today as they were as young girls.

Children and allowance

When my two daughters were young girls their father and I taught them to earn their allowance each week.
They each had different household chores to do. They were simple, such as cleaning their room, picking up their toys, dusting the furniture and washing dishes. At the end of each week, if their chores were completed, they were handed an allowance. We then encouraged them to save part, and they could spend the rest on something they wanted. Giving allowances, and our children working toward the reward, also showed them responsibility.

The season of Lent and Easter

The season of Lent and Easter is here and the following, courtesy of Newspaper Metro, focuses on special days during Lent and leading up to Easter Sunday.
I hope everyone has a Blessed Easter.
Spring is eagerly anticipated, as many people look forward to enjoying the great outdoors once more. Spring is also a special time of year for practicing Christians.
Beginning on Ash Wednesday and lasting 40 weekdays until the arrival of Easter Sunday, the Lenten season is a very important time of year for Christians.
