Quoting ♫♥♬:" I rarely let DD buy candy, and when we do it comes from our money not hers! we save her money for fun stuff :) but we also put some away for collage for both the kids."
Our junk is timbits (um, donut holes?), chocolate milk and Popsicle haha. Chips once in awhile, but I don't buy actual candy... and the same, it's from my money, not his. He has no interest in buying candy with his money... He wanted to once, "I have lots of money!" I explained to him the difference between lots of loonies, and lots of money. It didn't click right away, I mean the kid is only 4... But he understands that saving for something worth saving for is better than buying something that will hurt your tummy.
