Around here all edibles are for sharing, so they think nothing of it if we eat some of the candy.

Of course not. They already know they won't be eating it all anyway. Truth be told we put them in a cabinet and they forget about it. I just threw out last year's candy to make room for stuff this year. If I eat some they don't even notice.

Am I the only one that read this thread and thought of Jimmy Kimmel's Halloween's You Tube challenge?

No way. We explained this to the kids before they got any candy. It's called a Chocolate Tax.

However I probably wouldn't "skim down" their candy and still take more.

No, all candy is put in a family bowl the 2nd it comes through the door after trick or treating. There is no 'my' candy in this house - it's everyones.

Your husband is only saying that so that HE gets first shot at the candy after he guilted you into staying away from it, LOL!! If my kids are there watching me, I'll ask because that's polite, but what they don't see, won't be missed. ;-)

I don't even think my DS (who is 4) even noticed the dent I made in his candy! lol We actually combined his with DS2 (who is 1) and just put it all in the pantry. It's community property now.

Re: Is it wrong to "steal" your kids halloween candy?

I voted other. I don't think taking the occasional piece here or there, with or without asking, is wrong. That's called sharing and trick or treating is done here with the understanding that the child will share some of her candy with mom and dad. However, the majority of the candy is theirs and their favorite pieces are left for them too.

However, I do think that dumping all the candy in one community candy dish, or worse, mom or dad taking the bag to work after doling out a very small portion to their kids is totally wrong.
