Differing Opinions

Sue continues to be very small.  She eats and gains weight very sporadically.  She loves junk food, but otherwise, can often take it or leave it.

Hubby and I struggle a little bit about how to handle her eating habits.

I prefer to offer her good choices and whether or not she eats it is up to her.  Obviously, she does not get special treats if she does not eat a good amount of healthy food.

Hubby worries more about her lack of eating.  He prefers to see her clean her plate.  He often will have her sit there until she is done.

I worry about making eating a battleground.  I worry we are setting her up for an eating disorder.

There is no clear cut way to handle this.

How do you and your spouse handle parenting differences?  How do you work to show an united front?

Linking up at Thought Provoking Thursday.
