My 6-year old, ananya was having a hard time finishing the food on her plate. So, I decided to feed her. One of the illusions we have is that things get done quickly when we do them standing…So, I did that..I was standing while feeding her…When she showed no signs of understanding the signal for urgency, I blurted , exasperated, “ Ananya, gulp your mouthful. I am standing here trying to feed you!!!” What I got in exchange was a look a total bewilderment and a chair along with a , “ sit down!” from her.
