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.
