Did You Raid Child's Halloween Candy?

FUN POLL: Tell the truth...did you analyze your children's candy loot and keep some for yourself?

Did You Raid Child's Halloween Candy?

Isn't it tempting to try to get your children to share some of their Halloween candy heap? What's your approach — have them go through and select some items they are willing to share, go through it together and decide, or to sneak a few trips to the candy well?

For some parents, it starts by wanting to ration the candy to avoid their children from overindulging and getting ill.

In Canada, a tradition of donating Halloween candy is catching on. Parents use an enticing candy trade-in program. Children get to keep 10 treats of their choice. They then swap the remaining candy for a small gift from parents, while the parents donate to a candy charity.
