Is your child a Fusspot ?

Is your child a Fusspot? I am not talking a just being foodie fusspot here but a fusspot  in general? A Fusspot will expert many signs from not liking the foot on their plate to the fact they don't  WANT to wear pink today. Working in a school you get fussiness all the time " Miss so and so won't play with me "  "Me Well did you ask them?' The child "No but they won't play with me.."

The problem with a fussy child is that is can lead onto other behaviours if not managed correctly. I myself am battling a fusspot eater and a fusspot shopper ...

When it comes to a fusspot in the classroom I heard about a clever idea that seemed to work for teacher that I know. You simply draw a pot on a whiteboard  and when the situation arises you put the fussy child's name in it.  The thinking behind this it will stop other behaviours escalating and thus produce a happy and harmonious classroom.

Of course simple ideas like this can be transposed to the home... Only wish I had thought of it years ago then perhaps I would have a boy who would be happy to shopped till he dropped?
