Lord Dimwit: ImpatientlyUnsympathetic: Splish: I was talking to a doctor the other day and out of nowhere she bragged that her 16 year old daughter has never eaten a vegetable.  And my uncle's girlfriend is proud of the fact that she's never eaten anything green; she'll tell you every chance she gets. These people are out there.  We don't have to pay attention to them.

They're train wrecks though, so hard to look away. My nephew won't touch vegetables. I'm truly horrified that someone that works in the health field (such as the doctor you know and also my MIL and SIL) are so willing to accept unbalanced diets. Then again, my nephew has had obvious speak issues since the age of two and he started getting therapy for it at 4.5 years old, because it wasn't convenient before. And the family doctor continually said he was OK. No one could say anything about it without getting shut down because the doctor said he was OK. Medical professionals can be idiots too.

I've known at least two children (my nephew and a child of a friend) who couldn't speak more than babbling and "mama/dada" at the age of two and a half, but their pediatricians always said "they're fine, they're fine." I don't get it, how is that possible? Are the developmental milestones really that loose? (They're not; I've checked.)

You'd think these people would be reprimanded by their licensing boards or something.


My mother in law is practically rabid when it comes to recommending this doctor to any and every body that will listen. I've saw him for 2.5 years. I won't be going back. He doesn't stay in his lane. He's a family practice doctor, but he wants to be your everything doctor. Thyroid issues? No need to see an endocrinologist, you see me! Pregnant? You can still see me! Its like specialists do not exist in his mind. Then there is the way he addresses things. I am being treated for hypothyroidism and I am losing weight. So I see a dietitian at my own expense (insurance doesn't cover it) and I lose over 15% of my body weight in less than 6 months. When I see him again, he tells me, "well, you know now that your thyroid is working, so its time to stop blaming that for your weight issues and to lose weight."

DAFUQ?

I haven't been working my behind off (literally!) for the last 6 months to lost 15% of my body weight? You think 25mcg of Synthroid would do that? You think that I just woke up on a Monday and said, lets go for a 27 mile backpacking trip with 20,000 feet of elevation gain without any preparation? Dang, I wish I'd just sat my fluffy behind on the couch and waited for that 15% of my body weight to melt away, it was HARD to train for a back packing trip through the mountains! And backpacking is farking expensive, I could have saved so much on the dietitian and backpacking equipment if I'd just sat on the couch and waited!

ImpatientlyUnsympathetic: A child with "Selective Eating Disorder" is my worst nightmare. If my hypothetical children fussed about everything, I'd lose my mind.


My parents broke multiple nephews of selective eating problems.  The teen in the op is an extreme example, but if you catch them young and early, the *average* fix is to simply not break down and give them what they want all the time.  IE they'll eat what they're given when they're hungry enough.

There's some developmental reasons to be picky - back in the stone age new food is potentially unsafe, so if you can get what you've already been accustomed to, it's safer.  But then, you generally were forced to try new foods fairly frequently in order to get enough calories, so hunger alone would force you into trying sufficient new foods to stay healthy(mostly).

That's bizarre. I heard my child muttering swear words in a correct context at that age. Apparently Lego is frustrating.


My kid is 21 months old and already speaks better than his cousin did at 4. His cousin is 8 now and still has speech issues (can't pronounce "r" sounds correctly, for example) that his parents refuse to acknowledge or do anything about in any way. It frustrates me to no end. I've given up trying to say anything.

My good friend's 2.5 year old was deeming things, "farking bullshiat" in conversation when she disagreed with you. But you can't even converse with my nephew and he's 5.5. You know those kids in the insurance commercials that have long involved conversations about why "less is not more" and are coherent? My nephew will talk for the same amount of time with the same amount of hand gestures but he's completely incoherent. Then, he turns to his mom and his mom "translates" for you. Except, it takes 10 seconds to translate 60 seconds of speaking, so I don't even think she understands him fully. Sometimes, he won't even talk to you, sometimes he just asks his mom to tell you something.

At 18 months old my daughter was speaking in 5-7 word sentences but couldn't legitimately jump and get air till 2.5 or 3. The next kid, a boy, was barely stringing two words together at two years old and had a very limited vocabulary but he could communicate a lot of what he wanted. He was also walking at 9 months and jumping and getting air around 14 months. We wondered a bit with him bit his big sister did all his talking for him so I think he just kept his mouth shut and kept moving. Around 2.5 or so he just broke out speaking in big sentences and putting together some pretty abstract, deep thoughts that I didn't hear out of my daughter till she was much older.
The youngest, who will be two in May, has been talking for a while and is now stringing together 4-7 word sentences from time to time. Granted, he slurs his speech a lot but I think it's because he's out of breathe from trying to keep up with big brother. He's almost got jumping figured out. When the other kids are launching themselves from the back of the couch to the floor he's trying to jump off the cushions and falling on his face and giggling about it. Or falling onto the other two kids after they've landed on the floor while laughing with a distinctive mad scientist laugh. Kid ain't right but he cracks me up.

I don't get parents who do this. When I was a kid whoever cooked decided what everybody ate. It was my mom about 75% of the time. If I didn't like it I ate it anyway, because I either ate it hot then or cold later when I got hungry enough.

I watch my mother in law, who raises her other daughter's kid, make herself something, her husband something different, and the granddaughter a third thing. Ain't nobody got time for that.

He must drink some sort of alcohol with a lime in it. Mojito perhaps?

How come these retards are always from England? Eat'n noodles, Sponges, Soaps, and fark knows what else. Round 'em up and ship 'em to an island somewhere where they can have thier own little disfunctional society. Just send in a container from the dollar store full of Ramen Noodles adn cleaning supplies once a month..... ohhhh shiat wait..... they are already on a disfunctional island..... England......

I loathe picky people.  They brag about it like it makes them special... "oh I *can't* eat that, it will make me sick"  "if we're going to eat that, it has to be prepared this special way or else I can't eat it"  "if I eat garlic I'll swell up and can't walk for a week".  They think it makes them unique or precious in some way, but it just makes them look weak and pathetic.  One of my ex's would complain about garlic, said it made it hard for her to breathe is she ever ate any.  So I did experiments.  Would put garlic in food and tell her it had none in it.  She'd be fine.  Then tell her it had garlic in it when it didn't, and suddenly she couldn't breathe.  It was all in her head and she loved the attention.

Pwnzor: Seriously though, if this story is true it's nothing more than a severe parenting fail. The problem starts when parents project their own tastes onto their children at a very young age by doing such things as wrinkling up their noses and saying, "eeeew are you sure you want to try that spinach? You probably won't like it." Serve up a side of veggies like it's something new and special and let the kids decide for themselves whether or not they like it. Oh, and don't do something stupid like "hide" the vegetables in other foods and lie to the kids, i.e. calling mashed cauliflower mashed potatoes. And start early with the new food discovery -- as soon as the kids are sitting at the table with you.


You sound like a good parent. I don't recall ever having a problem with vegetables and it's because my parents were like you. Also, picky eating was tolerated perfectly - you could be as picky as you wanted, but if you didn't eat what was served, your only other option was bread and milk. Parents with "selective eaters" have selective eaters because they produce them. Shiat, if I had a short-order cook for three meals a day I'd be pretty "picky" too.

My poor wife does this. I'm vegetarian but will otherwise eat anything, she's not a vegetarian but a super picky (I mean reallypicky) eater, and our kid eats whatever we make for him (usually some from both of our plates and something extra on top of that).

 They all sound like fun kids.

I think that your situation is slightly different than kids with legitimate speech issues with people denying the speech problems exist. You seem aware of the different advances/delays of your kids and what your kids aren't doing well. Awareness is necessary before you can take action, but my nephew's caregivers weren't even willing to admit something might not be perfect. My mother in law continually shut everyone down telling the adults that we were the problem, not the kid. And for 3 years, the kid has been mad at all of us for not understanding him. We're the problem according to Nana, so she will scold you in front of him. Not trying to make the kid feel bad for being difficult to understand, but she's not helping him either by telling us we're wrong.

With my nephew, his parents would either translate for him, or simply anticipate what he wanted before he had to ask, so he never needed to say anything. They also refused to correct him. Any time I tried to bring up the problem, I was either told that "his pediatrician says he's fine" or it devolved into a "you don't have kids, you don't know what it's like" (which at the time was true) thing.

My son was saying his first word ("ball") at around 9 months and was speaking in reasonably complex sentences by 18-20 months. (My personal favorite so far was when he was about 19 months old and he said "Look, daddy, the moon in the door!" Turns out the house we were walking by had a moon-shaped window in their front door.) I have to say, I'm really grateful he's doing so well - he was born preterm and I was terrified it was going to lead to developmental delays.

I see stories like this and am reassured that my kids will never eat like this.  My 4 year old will eat anything - including Sushi, Broccoli Pancakes, Chicken Vindaloo and pretty much anything but pomengranates, yogurt and chocolate milk.

Do you just hate yourself?

I have the little girl sometimes and she'll say she's hungry and I will make whatever I was going to make and she'll biatch for a few minutes, discover I don't buckle, and eat the damn curry/fajitas/etc. I know how much willpower a seven year old has and dont believe for a second she can starve herself literally to death.

(I should note here that the poor kid is lactose/sucrose/maltose intolerant and it is hard enough to cook something she CAN eat. She is going to have to learn to broaden her palate within those restrictions or she's going to have a miserable and malnourished life. There is a method to my madness.)

A cousin of mine would only eat peanut butter on a soft tortilla shell for many years of her young life. It used to infuriate me at family gatherings where there was so much delicious food that people took the time and care to prepare. I wish just once her parents would have made her choke down something else or at least experiment with other foods. it wasn't worth the fight for them I guess, which is why my cousin looked like Powder for many years.

I can't stand eating around picky eaters. If you don't like something just don't order it FFS.

Also I have noticed that for many picky eaters it has more to do with texture than flavor.
 
2013-04-10 01:56:06 PM
Two things-

One, there's a fine line between a picky kid and a kid with a disorder. Having worked at a pediatric therapy office, I know the difference. I think it's 90% in the parenting approach, like it has been said this thread.

If your kid will only eat orange food because it's his favorite color? Give him sweet potatoes and squash and carrots and oranges. THAT CHILD DOESN'T HAVE TO LIVE ON MAC N CHEESE. *facepalm*

And two, I had an adult friend who didn't like vegetables. She's that lady who puts bacon, crispy chicken, cheese and ranch on a single leaf of lettuce and calls it a salad. She always used to complain about her weight. I went, you know, if you made a veggie ONLY salad for lunch every day, you'd probably lose a ton of weight. She was APPALLED at the suggestion. She also didn't feed her kids veggies because she "figured" they wouldn't like them either. BAD PARENT.

I've dated some picky eaters, turns out their moms were just shiatty cooks. I can make sautéed Brussels sprouts and stuffed zucchini that would make your taste buds sing. You don't have to straight boil veggies to cook them.

This girl will be dead in under five years. Calling it now.

I have to say, I'm really grateful he's doing so well - he was born preterm and I was terrified it was going to lead to developmental delays.


I don't have kids yet, but I'm getting the same from my in laws. Now my nephew is getting as much speech therapy as insurance and the school district offer, but the hard thing is, from what my friends with speech delayed children say, its necessary to start therapy as soon as possible. My nephew didn't start until he was 4.5 and after a year, he's no more coherent. I asked my MIL about it and she said that sometimes you need to move backward to move forward. This is pretty scary to me because he can't move any more backward unless he regresses and since he's due to start kindergarten in September, how the hell is it OK to regress? As much money as my MIL has, I can't understand why she's not ponying up for private therapy. She's involved in every facet of their lives, so I don't know why extra therapy is off limits?

It honestly makes me angry, because my younger nephew is going to soon surpass the older one in terms of ability and then what will they do? When your younger child is more communicative than the older one? Is that when they'll admit there is something seriously out of whack with the situation?

My brother's ex had two kids who were 4+ years apart and it wasn't until the younger one was going to kindergarten that it was obvious that the older one had severe issues. Like, no joke, the 5 year old escorted the older sister to class. My brother's ex had to admit that the older one just might be on the spectrum... she had real issues functioning. But no school district can force you to have a child diagnosed and they won't get an IEP started for the fun of it when there is no parental support for starting services. CPS was involved after her and my brother split. Not sure who would have called. Certainly not my mom and my brother... *WHISTLES*

/Brother was living apart of the girlfriend for over 2 years while he was in the military.
//The girls are not his, but my brother did inform their dad (who was deployed to Korea) that there were issues.
///Their dad told the girlfriend that my brother contacted him and then they broke up for the 329th time.

Moms who are bad cooks are a key problem with picky eaters. That was my husband's problem. I take a lot of credit for changing his picky ways, but he also wanted to be more adventurous AND he got very interested in nutrition (that happens when you run 80+ miles a week and need to meet extra demanding dietary requirements of such training), so he wanted to be a better eater too. My favorite dinner with my in laws was when his mother boiled veggies for 15 minutes and my husband said, "I'd rather drink the water. All the nutrients are there anyway." His mom was truly shocked that boiling veggies within an inch of their life and topping them with salad dressing was not a desirable option.

I agree, the girl has under 5 years to live unless someone intervenes. She does not look healthy.

Could be the island gene pool phenomenon. Certain things become dominant. The English have people who eat weird stuff and have weird teeth. The Japanese have a lot of...weirdness. Newfoundland has some people who feel no pain and some people with random massive heart attacks at a young age. Iceland has too many attractive people.

Ugh. 15 minutes?? Unless they're in a crockpot, that's unacceptable. And disgusting. My mom just hated cooking so she did whatever was easiest- usually it was green beans or carrots and peas from a can. I always ate them anyway, but now that I buy my own groceries? Night and day. Plus, as Shepherd Book once said, "The seasoning is key. You can live on packaged food from here 'til judgement day if you've got enough rosemary." My kid is going to love everything on her plate. My inner fat child is always inventing new ways to cook stuff.

Good on you, and that running thing- wow. I consider myself a relatively healthy person but that gene some people have that make them like running? I don't have it.

Round 'em up and ship 'em to an island somewhere where they can have thier own little disfunctional society. Just send in a container from the dollar store full of Ramen Noodles adn cleaning supplies once a month..... ohhhh shiat wait..... they are already on a disfunctional island..... England......

Could be the island gene pool phenomenon. Certain things become dominant. The English have people who eat weird stuff and have weird teeth. The Japanese have a lot of...weirdness. Newfoundland has some people who feel no pain and some people with random massive heart attacks at a young age. Iceland has too many attractive people.


The teenager FTA is from Isle of Wight too, so even smaller island gene pool.

I was raised by mother who cooked well and a father who was raised on a farm. I ate what I was fed and I complimented the cook. My husband was catered to, if you don't like dinner, mom or dad will make you a sandwich. *EYEROLL* That teaches them nothing.

My husband wanted to climb Mt. Rainier and was wearing a pack, hiking mountains as training, then one day, he thought, "I wonder how fast I could go without the pack?" Then the odyssey of ultrarunning started for him. It was so much fun for me to go to his races. His training was super hard on him and when he went back to school, it didn't work anymore, but I loved it. Now he plays soccer three times a week, which is much less of a time commitment. At his peak he was training up to 15 hours a week, not including the time it took to drive to places he ran or the special food requirements (I was going to 5 grocery stores a week to procure the necessary food items for his strict eat-everything-not-nailed-down diet. I cooked for a family of four and it was just the two of us. And then there is the clothing problems. He has 26" waist shorts, because they accommodate his thighs, but he needs to get 30" waist pants to fit his legs.

Still the best part: He weighed less than his mom when he was his fittest. I like to point that out to her if she gets particularly uppity about his dietary restrictions - his HEALTHY dietary restrictions - like not eating his weight in greasy potatoes.

Maul555: Nothing pisses me off more than my grandmother calling me a picky eater.  I am the opposite of a picky eater, I am an adventuresome eater.  If I have never had it and have trouble pronouncing it, then I want it even more.  I will eat everything from sashimi, to indian food, to pickled quail eggs...  I just don't like farking nuts which she is always putting into her pies and salads n shiat and she thinks I must be the worst eater in the world because of it.  always trying to sneak nuts into my food on purpose...   I am not allergic to nuts, I will even eat nuts, I just dont care for them and they will straight up ruin a salad for me...

/end tangent


I have a relative like that.  A couple of years ago when we all got together at someone's house for a week at Thanksgiving, she brought a huge bag of walnuts.  Now, I do like most nuts but not always in stuff, however I hate walnuts with a passion.  She was insisting that they were a "superfood" and wanted to put them in every-god-damned-thing that was cooked.  My wife (bless her heart) took her aside and said that she could only put them in things that she actually cooked or just leave the bag out for people to add to their food.

Reminds me of Mr Kiwi's mom. The woman is ROTUND. We don't see her much since they don't get along, and fine by me. But he eats everything, and in fact, when his mother was pregnant with him, she lost 70 lbs, because if she ate garbage, she'd lose it. If she ate healthy, it stayed down. There's a private joke in there somewhere as to why my only major pregnancy craving this far has been apples. I go through fifteen a week sometimes.

That's bizarre. I heard my child muttering swear words in a correct context at that age. Apparently Lego is frustrating.

However, she also just pushed a box into position to use a magazine rack to climb onto the box then tried to use the box to climb up onto the sofa.

Would it make you more disturbed if I told you my neurologist said this doctor is a male OB/GYN? Because that's the part I usually leave out because people get really outraged that a doctor that specializes in women's medicine and pregnancy would take that hormone just to lose weight while only eating 500-1200 calories a day...

My mom is currently on a wheat, dairy, egg, peanut, soy, corn and sugar free diet. She lost 10lbs in 3 weeks. She knows she's very allergic to some of those things because it was diagnosed during childhood, but she's adding them back in to track her symptoms, one at a time, to figure out what she can/cannot eat. She told me, "I'm eating things I never thought I would... like spinach." I am still not sure how she raised me to be a thoroughly unpicky eater and somehow she's never eaten spinach? I think it proves that if you try hard enough to not raise picky children, eventually they'll keep exploring, even beyond your own limits.

We have ones around here that claim they can cure allergies. My allergies are pretty bad, because I'm allergic to all trees that grow in WA, so I've had several well meaning nuts offer me the cards to their cure-all chiropractors. My allergies are well controlled with medication, I don't need spinal adjustments or neck cracking to "cure" my issues, thanks.

HCG Diet is totes legit u guise. See, take the magic drops and eat a lot of greasy food, that's phase 1. You won't lose any weight at this point because you're getting your body ready for the transition to weight loss.

Phase two- keep taking the magic drops. its incredibly important to take the drops. Don't forget about the drops, they are KEY. Now, eat no more than 5-700 calories a day for 60 days. Guess what will happen

You'll start losing weight.

That's my daughter too - just turned 1 and says "Mama" and "Ball".  She quite clearly communicates though - comes crawling when she's called, meows when asked what a kitty says, asks for things by bringing you her cup/cheerio bowl/whatever.  She also rolled/crawled/walked months before her big brother as well, though - it's almost like there's only enough mental resources for a few developments at a time.  Working on locomotion?  Verbal development stops.  Etc.

My son, on the other hand, is 3.5 and will hold complete discourses with you.  In clear, enunciated words and grammatically correct sentences.  My husband told him the other day "If you keep carrying your leap pad by the stylus string it's going to break and we aren't going to get you a new one."  The response - "I will go to Santa's workshop and get the instructions.  I will give the reindeers carrots and they will help me."

Can't get him toilet trained, though.

LOL. Yeah don't forget the drops. Did I mention the drops? Oh and don't eat, except for the drops.
I dropped 25 lbs when I cut out gluten, from 200 to 175. It works and I've never felt better. Veggies and lean meant (and a few sweets I admit). I did put 10 of those 25 back on, but it was on purpose thanks to exercise and fat to muscle conversion.

This is a time when you show your mettle as a parent. Don't want to eat your veggies? Fine. But you're not getting anything else until they are eaten. Ever. Trust me, eventually the hunger will consume you and those veggies will look like ice cream. We will keep them in the refrigerator for when you are ready. I am the parent. I control the food supply. I win the argument. The end.

I think the eating out options for budget-conscious people might be the problem for Americans in England. My friend was there as an exchange student in college and she had no access to cooking facilities, so all she could do was eat out or microwave her food and she hated everything about the food. She ended up gaining 15lbs because she settled for American fast food instead of continuing to try English fare. She is still a pretty picky eater though. She was raised on a steady diet of processed American slop, so she had a pretty limited range of acceptable foods, textures and tastes. And apparently, Kraft Mac and Cheese is fairly pricy there and this was pre-microwave Easy Mac!

ImpatientlyUnsympathetic: spunkymunky: Lord Dimwit: ImpatientlyUnsympathetic: Splish: I was talking to a doctor the other day and out of nowhere she bragged that her 16 year old daughter has never eaten a vegetable.  And my uncle's girlfriend is proud of the fact that she's never eaten anything green; she'll tell you every chance she gets. These people are out there.  We don't have to pay attention to them.

They're train wrecks though, so hard to look away. My nephew won't touch vegetables. I'm truly horrified that someone that works in the health field (such as the doctor you know and also my MIL and SIL) are so willing to accept unbalanced diets. Then again, my nephew has had obvious speak issues since the age of two and he started getting therapy for it at 4.5 years old, because it wasn't convenient before. And the family doctor continually said he was OK. No one could say anything about it without getting shut down because the doctor said he was OK. Medical professionals can be idiots too.

I've known at least two children (my nephew and a child of a friend) who couldn't speak more than babbling and "mama/dada" at the age of two and a half, but their pediatricians always said "they're fine, they're fine." I don't get it, how is that possible? Are the developmental milestones really that loose? (They're not; I've checked.)

You'd think these people would be reprimanded by their licensing boards or something.

At 18 months old my daughter was speaking in 5-7 word sentences but couldn't legitimately jump and get air till 2.5 or 3. The next kid, a boy, was barely stringing two words together at two years old and had a very limited vocabulary but he could communicate a lot of what he wanted. He was also walking at 9 months and jumping and getting air around 14 months. We wondered a bit with him bit his big sister did all his talking for him so I think he just kept his mouth shut and kept moving. Around 2.5 or so he just broke out speaking in big sentences and putting together some pretty abs ...


I know the feeling well. One of my nephews is a bit delayed and at 6 is just now getting speech therapy. I feel bad for the kid because he's really bright, his mom is just a dumbass. Somehow she has a degree in early childhood education but until her kid started first grade completely missed it (she 'homeschooled' for Kindergarten).
A former coworker of my wife has a son who is 18 months and complains that he doesn't eat and only uses a couple words and is freaking out about it. But the Pediatrician hasn't said anything to them about clipping that little bit of skin that connects the tongue to the bottom of the mouth. On the kid's tongue it's so tight he cannot stick his tongue out to his lips without it looking as if he had his tongue split. And his tongue can't go more than 1\8th inch past his lips.
I really want to ask about it but I only see them every couple months so I just keep my mouth shut.

Also, my youngest runs around with a Nerf sword (yes, I gave all my kids Nerf swords for Christmas) and yells "SHEEERAAAAAA!" and then smacks whomever is nearest with the sword. It's farking awesome.

I think we're probably talking about different groups when we say "medical professionals" then.  Or maybe you haven't dealt with some parts of the population in general.  There are definitely doctors out there who are quirky, egotistical, kooky, misguided, just plain weird, etc.  They may even say and do idiotic things from time to time.  But none of them are idiots at large.
