Am I asking too much of my 3 year old nephew to sit with us for meals? I don't expect him to stay perfectly still in his chair, hands folded nicely or anything - I just would like him to stay IN his chair, period. He is constantly getting up to wander away, then will come back when we call him, eat a few bites, then wanders away again. But maybe he's too little for this kind of attention span? Do your 2-3 year olds sit with the rest of the family for the duration of a meal?
