Shouldn't I Teach My Kids Not To Accept Food From People?

How is ur family and all. Pls advice and help me to post this. Pls don't post my id. 
Is it wrong to teach your children not to accept food from people even at parties?

I went with my kids to a birthday party last weekend and they told the celebrant's mother that they don't want to eat (that was because I've always warned them against it), but the women there became angry with me, that what I am teaching them is wrong. 

My reason which I told them is so that even if I'm not there, they won't collect food from strangers, considering the world we are in. Pls family, help me x-ray this issue.

  3. Why making this look like a biggy? It is what you want your children to do and that is it. I personally like the morals you are giving to them.
    Well done poster Amaro Ndi ana eze.

  7. I tell my kids to collect, but they must show me bfor they eat it!
    If they reject things out rightly like dat it can be insulting especially when d person is just trying to be kind!
    I give stuff to other kids as well and won't like it if they reject it!
    But sha, u know ur "people" better, if u feel for any reason they shouldn't collect at all, then so be it!

If ur child is turnin dwn food @ a party, xpct evry kid 2 to also turn dwn food @ ur party den pls wher's d party? Its gud 2 teach ur children gud manners yes bt pls wen does gud manners turn 2 bad manners? Seems instead of modas 2 teach der children hw 2 say pls and thank u, n hw 2 pray b4 eatin, chew wit mouths closed, dnt talk while eatin, dey r busy teachin der children hw 2 say no 2 food @ a party. Anyways gud 4 evry1 I guess soon we wld b sharin uncooked food 4 mums 2 go n cook 4 der children or beta stil, 4get food jst bring gifts 4 d celebrant n go home.

  8. you are not wrong. before going for a party you tell them when they feel hungry they should come meet you and you will decide if they should eat.. back when I was a kid with my siblings..before we leave home..my mom fed us welllll...outing or birthday do not go outside acting like you have not eaten for days. Till date, my mom still teases me on how she beat me blue black for eating moi moi outside which I can't remember doing lol.. point is, you are not doing anything wrong, why are they vexing ?
    next time when your kids are at a party they should come ask you or even whisper in your ear if they can go take food, or you escort them to where its being shared and you watch them..

  9. Hmm rily! Poster kudos 4 teachin ur kids bad manners.Not takin fud frm any1 on a normal day is a gud tin 2 teach ur child. But @ parties? Y tak ur children 4 d party in d 1st place? So wht we wld strt doing is 2 share d food 2 d mums 2 share 2 der kids( as dt wld neutralise d poison). Wen does gud manners turn in2 bad manners? Peo tend 2 4get dt dey R nt d only ones dt hv ideas. So if all d mums, tel der children nt 2 eat @ parties, pls why d party? Dnt tak ur children 4 parties n dnt xpct any1 2 com 4 der party. Haba! Instead of mothers 2 teach der children hw 2 say pls and thank u, pray b4 eating, eat wit der mouths closed, dnt talk while eatin, dey r bizzy tellin dem nt 2 tak fud @ der friend's bday party. Dats jst insulting. If u throw a party 4 ur child, n afta preparing all d orishirishi, d kids com 4 d party wit alrdy bulging stomachs, or mouths tuned 2 sayin "no thank u I dnt wnt 2 eat" n den u si d mum givin dem somtin 2 eat frm der car, hw wld u feel? Guess we shld jst strt sharin uncooked food 4 d mums 2 go n cook @ home or beta stil, no nid 4 fud, jst bring gifts 4 d celebrant, we sing happy bday song n go home. We shld learn 2 do unto odas as we wnt done un2 us. If I can poison ur kid wit my kid's bday food, so can u. N if its bad manners 4 ur kid 2 eat @ my kid's bday, den its vice versa. If u dnt trust me nt 2 poison ur kids, beta dnt bring dem 4 my party n dnt feel bad wen mine dnt com 4 urs eida. Shikena

    1. True talk my sister. Poster in whatever we do, let us be considerate. Can you imagine organising a party and all the kids rejecting your food? We are raising social beings not aliens.

    @Poster they are your kids jare,you are the one that knows where the shoe pains you,if its your wish for them not to eat at parties so be it they are your kids and you gave birth to them do not allow anyone to make you feel bad,one thing about this society is that people are very good at making mothers feel bad,and incapable,you dnt argue with them when they come like that just smile and act as if you agree,meanwhile inculcate in your kids whatever you want from them with love,reasons and good explanations.

  14. Ivy, thank you o jare! Some kids eat lunch at school, that is, their parents pay for their lunch. So your kids don't eat out at all at all?

      And even those in boarding house sef. And Sunday school in church too. The problem with Nigerians is fear. Cos fear is the basis for such actions of rejection. Pure fear. Please teach them to say please, thank you and the grace before meal. They'll be fine. Teach them to be content with their snacks and not go begging other kids. Teach them to always pray before eating. Most importantly. Fear solves nothing. Prayer does. Cos food is not the only way of poisoning or killing people.

    In addition to what Ivy said, there are proper ways of doing things.

    1. Are u a christian? If u are, then u are magnifying fear above God's power to protect, that says "and these signs shall follow then dat believe in my name. They shall drink poisonous substances and it shall do them no harm".
    2. If u didn't want your kids eating, u should have asked your host to put it in a take away pack for u. Feel free to throw it away, if dat makes u sleep.
    3. If u see no harm in d eating, then tell your kids before food is being shared that they should take, but they should pray.
    4. If u didn't want them eating, u should have left and handed out your gifts before the time for refreshment began.

    Well sha, spend more time praying, instead of trying to using physical power to avert things. Cos if anyone wants to harm you, they'll so long as you don't pray.

    I was raised dis way! Before going for parties my mum would feed us wella so we won't go dia and do long throat. Back then it wasn't the fear of witch craft, it was so we won't act like kids who don't have food to eat. Even wen we go visiting, we must ask our mum before eating. These days of witch craft and tinz parents should be more cautious @ pastor pls keep it up.
