The good thing bout children is they have their innocence. They dont know that some things are icky or gross, they wont have a care in the world when
it comes to pooping in the woods, unlike some adults who are squeamish on mice and snakes, etc. My 2 year old saw a dead fish yesterday that his daddy
caught, it didnt freak him out in the least, he just said "fish?" and even watched daddy clean it.
As far as picky eating...they wont be when theyre no longer fed on a routine. As a mother i get to the point where i dont always wait until hes hungry
to feed him, therefore he will only eat what he wants bc hes not exactly starving. My son stopped wanting to drink anything other than apple juice, so
he no longer got it. I didnt want him to just not drink anything but apple juice was causing too many problems and i wanted him to switch to water. He
fought and fought it. He finally decided 'hey, im thirsty, i think i'll drink' and there you have it, he drinks water regularly now. They wont need
to know the technicalities of the situation, just the basic discipline to listen to your commands (such as stay here, follow me, let's run, etc).
Even the little bitties can realize when its no longer time to pretend to be dora/diego and time to listen and survive.
