I sent my kids to bed without dinner.

They wanted to sit there and whine and be rude because it wasn't what "they wanted". I gave them one warning to drop the attitudes, and they refused, so it was off to bed without dinner.

Sorry Charlie, in my house, you eat dinner if you're hungry. If you want to sit there and be rude, saying "yuck" to food and whining, there are consequences.

Would you do the same?

    Yep.  And it gets wrapped up and served to them for breakfast.

    No I would have told them put it in the fridge . The only thing you can eat tonight its that food.  I dont see why you sent them to bed . Is it stuff they normally eat ?

     No.  Anyone who goes to bed hungry in my house does so by choice. I wouldn't cook another meal, but she would be welcome to heat up leftovers or soup, or make herself a sandwich or bowl of cereal.

    Yes, it was.

    And the way they were whining, it was bed time. It's 7:30 here, so it's not crazy early.

    No.I don't like to use food or restricting food as a punishment or reward.

    Why did you send them to bed? Why not wrap up the food and tell them it will be in the fridge when they're hungry.

    I've done it before and I will do it again. You don't whine and bitch when someone took time to prepare a meal for you
