Lately, Colin has really been looking up to his hero. I'm talking about a man that is tall, dark, and handsome. I'm talking about a man that is mysterious, cunning, and daring. Yes indeed, I'm talking about…Batman! Who did you think I was referring to?
While parents have some sway over their kids, most of us know to defer to the likes of Batman, Superman, and other superheroes. Colin is in a stage where he loves to pretend like he is a superhero. He loves to dress up in a cape and run around the house with imaginary super powers. And he especially likes to dress up as Batman, his idol.
As a parent, you can use your kid's love of superheroes to your advantage. If your kids won't listen to you, perhaps they will listen to Batman or Superman. Try channeling the persuasive powers of your kids' heroes to encourage them to eat healthier. In the following video, I get Colin and Cailya into the act of eating healthy by pitting good versus evil. In this video, I make batman fried rice. One tip to make your fried rice healthier is to load it up with finely chopped bok choy. The white parts of the bok choy blend nicely into the rest of the rice grains. Happy Halloween!
