Teaching your kids how to eat properly is a little tricky. Especially if you come from somewhere where I come from where I have to sit and eat in a certain way, from Europe; and my wife is from here, and she has a different way of eating. I didn't want to make that an issue, where this is a bad way of eating, and this is the only right way of eating. What I came up with was, "Okay. When you are here, at the house, you can eat almost any way you want to, but you first have to show me that you know how to eat correctly." I've been teaching them -- First of all, I always eat exactly correctly, even though I don't want to, but I may overdo it a little bit. I want to know they know how to do it like that. Once they know how to eat like that, if they choose to eat another way at home, I say, "Okay. You can eat this way here, but if you go to somebody else's house and you sit around the dinner table and you are eating, you are not going to eat like that." That's the rule.
