comment Just found out my 13 year old girl is Bi and dating a 17 year old girl in an “open” relationship. Huh? Now what?
@likejiujitsu, there are 15 comments you can't see because I deleted them. My admonition to take it to chat was directed to those people, not to the answer itself.

+1 for the journal. It could also lead them to realize she is eating more than they thought she was.

comment How can we get our 5 year old to behave during eating, without us nagging all the time?
If that is working for you, by all means make the manners your next priority. My daughter doesn't each much at dinner either.

Normally, I would agree with you, @RubberDuck, but I think that's problematic with this particular child's medical history. People like that don't respond in a normal manner to hunger.

Yes, this is one of those situations where it has to get worse before it gets better. Trust me though, it will get better.

I think the speed is important, because otherwise she will drag it out all night. Set an amount and set a timer. If she's not done when the timer rings, impose a consequence and start again. It won't speed her up the first day, but if the consequence is bad enough, it will work within a few weeks. I've done it before, multiple times. Works great with a dessert incentive too. If you're not ready when everyone else is ready for dessert, you don't get any.
