Booker T. Washington said, "Few things can help an individual more than to place responsibility on him, and to let him know that you trust him." This is the power of Expectations which is the Fourth E in our five-part blog series on The Five Essential E's of Raising Responsible Kids. If you are just starting this series, make sure to go back and catch up on the last three E's: Example, Experience, and Empathy.

This blog is the second in a five-part series about raising responsible children. As a reminder, Love and Logic® teaches us to use five easily understood, practical, and effective skill sets - The Five Essential E's: Example, Experience, Empathy, Expectations, and Encouragement. Last week we went over the importance of Example and how it plays a role in these five steps. We hope you are able to follow along each week and put each of these steps into play as we move on.

A mother recently contacted us about getting her 19 month old daughter with cystic fibrosis to raise her calorie intake.

Question: Are your CFer's picky eaters? My daughter who is almost 19 months has cystic fibrosis but the only problem she has is that she doesn’t eat well. So, we have to give her Pediasure to make sure she is getting enough calories. I wish that she would eat better but she doesn’t so the Pediasure is necessary for the time being. And I am tired of being viewed as the lazy parent who doesn’t want to make her child eat. If this is something you have experienced, how have you handled it? – NE
