"Do I have to have salad?"
The question I am asked nearly every dinner time.
I'm not sure why they bother because the answer is always a resounding "YES!" but I guess they can always live in hope.Salad. It's the one thing that can cause a major battle at the dinner table in most households with toddlers and teens (and maybe even husbands)! So when I came across a business that made salad look sexy and so delicious, and then discovered that they also families with kids, I knew I had to ask them how salad consumption at their mealtimes rated.
It's what we all want, isn't it? When we dream about having a family, we picture it as one big happy family. Everyone loves one another, shares toys, helps out. But if your family is anything like mine, that's just not how it happens. There's fights and squabbles, tears and tantrums...at least they're cute when they're little. And then they hit their teen years.
We spoke with Dr Justin Coulson, one of Australia's leading and most trusted parenting experts to hear about his experiences as a dad of teens and share his thoughts on how we can connect to our teenage daughters.
