We don’t eat candy in our house, but we’re allowing Bear to go trick or treating with her cousin this year. Last year, when she was two, it wasn’t an issue. Trick or treating doesn’t happen in Costa Rica. There Halloween is something the grownups and young adults do as costume parties.
Bear knows she is going to be getting candy. She also knows that she won’t be allowed to eat it. She’ll be trading in her candy for other sweet treats we allow like Cascadian Farms Fruitful O’s, a handful of dark chocolate chips, and a bit of icecream.
How do you tame the candy monster in your homes?
