She looked at me like I was speaking Latin. Now, my girls did not throw a fit wanting the candy but I was still very annoyed. Why do people question stuff like that? Why would they just offer THEM without asking ME first? I know, I know it was to be "nice" and "friendly" and all that garbage, but it just gets to me. Sorry for the rant.
not to question your parenting decision. but to really understand what is going on.
i have been asked that same question - in different ways, under different circumstances. and i have not taken affront to it. instead its opened up a new way of thinking for that person. like wow!!! so some parents dont like candy for their kids. a foreign concept for them. i couple of places started offering stickers. yeah they truly did.
