Rewarding with Love, NOT Food


If you reward your children for good behaviour with a special food treat, you’re not alone. Many parents find it tempting to use food as a reward for good behaviour. However, rewarding children with food is not the best idea as it sends the wrong message about the role of food in their lives. Let Truestar give you the information you need so you learn to reward your kids with love, not food.



Rewarding with FOOD
When food is commonly used as a reward or punishment, this teaches a child to rely on food for the wrong reasons. Our bodies need food for nourishment and nutrition, NOT for feeling valued. If children are used to being rewarded for good behavior with food, they will continue to seek rewards of food as they grow up. This confuses children and they may begin to eat not because of hunger, but rather for emotion and self-love.

If hasbeen would just group hug , we might not have to deal with the Jenny Craig countdown every off season .

Eloquently put, but Gambler did start the thread. He is one of the rest of us vegetative ninnys that are drooling on our shoes and take no offense at the team having a surprise day of relaxation.

Oh, and wings and boiled lobster arent a bad idea either. You cant really upscale and go with Hot Phesant Wings... But lobster boiled in Zataran's is probably pretty damn good. But without an NFL salary no one in my neighborhood is gonna have a Lobster Boil anytime soon to find out. I may just have to do one lobster for myself just to try it out. At least boiled lobster is certainly less wasteful than the 750+ phesant carcasses that would have to be thrown out to make enough phesant wings to feed a NFL team.

Please, spare the psychobabble. If people would stop making excuses for why biology/upbringing/Satan/McDonalds/etc is to blame for obesity, it would be easier to get to the real root of the problem.

You lack the will to put down the fork and get off the sofa.

I have a nice beer gut. Why? Because I eat more than I exercise. I dont need therapy to get to the root of the problem. Whatever the cause may be, I still know when I go for the cheeseburger that I should go for the salad. If I know this and I whine about my genes or temptation by succubi wearing onion rings as pasties, I am simply making an excuse for my behavior without trying to change it. That, in my opinion, is a much larger dilemma than being rewarded with food as a child.



And this whole freaking conversation has done gone and made me hungry.

Only one concern. Did they serve butter with the lobster's? If so, I hope AB and the wide receivers wash their hands before Friday's game. Otherwise we will see...well you know the rest of the story!

Well, if they lay an egg on 9/11, I still couldn't blame this one day of practice about 3 weeks earlier for that. How much difference could one day of practice at this point make?

Why are you telling me this?

Personally, I like chicken wings.
