Good point, and I would take this one step further:  The person doing the day-to-day work of feeding is getting battered in the process and is constantly in the position of being the bad guy.  It is a big help (and kindness) if this bad guy role can be shared with the professionals so that the parent has someone to "blame."

Thanks.
