Wiggly 5 year old at the dinner table
Okay so my kid (ODS) is skinny and he's has a little trouble focusing at meal times. He really needs to be made to buckle down and eat his dinner. Anyway so when his little brother was old enough we graduated ODS to a dining room chair and out of his booster seat. Its probably been a year since he's used the booster. Anyway so ODS doesn't stay seated during dinner. He's always wiggling his chair over, leaning on the chair, standing up and just not sitting. Maybe partially because only his toes touch the floor when sitting. Would it be ridiculous to get him a booster seat. I don't mean a highchair or anything i could strap him into.... just something that would raise him up a little higher at the table and have some small arms on it to contain his wiggly butt. But I don't like to go backwards, but I want him to sit down and eat....
