Halloween Candy. Sticky situation?
Trick or Treating? Follow the Division of Responsibility with your children, to ensure they learn how to self regulate when it comes to copious amounts of candy!
Day 1 and 2: Allow your child to sort all their candy, and enjoy as much or as little as they want. They are in control and will know when they've had enough.
Day 3: Have them put the candy away. They can have a piece or two at meal time, and as much or as little as they want at snack time.
Continue until the candy is gone, or he or she forgets about the stash! It works. Restricting and controlling does not.
