Everyday it almost takes forty five minutes for me to make my daughter drink her cup of milk. Sometimes it is really irritating for me and I loose my patience and give her a slap. But, giving her a slap early in the morning spoils the day’s routine. Moreover, she tells everyone that she drank milk after getting a slap from amma. (adi vaanginapparum paal kudicchen).
During weekends I was putting the onus on my husband by keeping the cup near him and kept myself busy in the kitchen. Then, we tried the following methods that are suggested by friends and well-wishers.
1 Tried milk with different flavours like complan, milk maid, milk shake etc.
2 Pink milk (strawberry essence added to the milk)
3 Gave her milk in a fancy cup.
4 Milk served in a paper cup (the outer portion of the cup coloured by her)
I tried all these combinations but nothing worked and my fight continues……………..
