Re: Neighbors kid keep asking for Candy!

Honestly I don't think I'd ever turn a kid away from eating, even if it was often, I'd wonder secretly if they were getting enough from home. I don't think I could ever just not feed a kid, especially if they seem to be hungrier then other kids. Though I agree, I don't give my kids sugar or junk, we don't even keep it in the house, so I'd make all the treats, even the good-behavior treats, healthy ones like fruit, vegetables, or crackers and cheese, etc. If it started happening a lot, I'd go and buy some stuff in bulk and designate that as the treat for whatever kid, so that it doesn't dip into the regular household food.
