Here is what a four-year-old thinks; “if I say I am hungry, dad will say it is o.k. for me to have some gummy vitamins.” The conversation goes like this.
“I want vitamins.”
“But you already had your vitamins for today.”
With a moderate whine, “But dad, I’m hungry!”
“I understand. How about an apple.”
“No, I want vitamins. I’m hungry.”
