I've been reading this parenting book called "How to talk to your kids so they can learn". I'm just half way through and I kept telling myself "ah.. that's what I did/say all the time.  Why didn't I read this book earlier?" and some  "Yeah, I do that. So it is the right way, alright! " So yeah, I could have been better and I guess I'm not too late to start now. But it takes alot of patience (and alot of hair dyes and facials too)  and I hope I can change my parenting style.

So one of the advise was using jokes or funny terms/words to make them learn. And this is one thing that I have been doing. I use my kids terms or funny terms to make them try new food. For example this:
I just bought this bun for JD last night. I said "have a custard bun" and he said "what bun? Bleargh" without even looking at it.
And then I tried again "Wow! A Hypno Bun!" And he went "where where? Wowwwwwwwwwwwww"  and he brought it to school today.

So yeah, the word that you choose to use will determine the outcome/reaction. So being a lil creative will make your life as a parent easier. Try it :)
