Candy at school
I need advice. Dandy gets way too much candy at school. He gets a piece or two a day from his teacher, and sometimes from the library lady, and sometimes from his classmates. We still have Christmas and Valentine's candy stockpiled and here comes Easter candy.
The problem is two-fold.
One -- Dandy gets really hyper on sugar so we limit it.
Two -- According to all the attachment experts, sweets are the fast-track to your newly adopted children's innermost beings. So, if they are to get candy, it should be from us. But how can we ever get a chance to bless them with treats when their daily quota is being exceeded (and partially consumed) at school?
It looks as if I am going to have to be the Mean Mom and tell the school NO SUGAR!! So then what happens when all the other kids get sweets? How have you handled this? Any advice?
