Mine is only 3.5, but I just have to repeat why we don't eat sweets all the time - "our body needs healthy food blah blah blah".  And if you beg, the answer is no.  Period.  Also, we try not to have...

Thanks for posting these!  I didn't feel like the scarymommy one was that useful for me unfortunately - it really only speaks to the moms who don't enjoy, as she says, playground time and baking. ...

Forgot that I'd posted this and wanted to bump to see if anyone had any ideas.  What would you respond to a child who asks for a reward just for normal, expected behavior?  Thanks!
