If you have school age children, when you go shopping do you buy them a little treat like a candy bar?

I do sometimes. They like that.

  • Sure, When they were younger like 4 and if they behaved while I did all my shopping we could stop by the toy section and get a hotwheel. Now that they are older I can't get away with only spending 79 cents, now they want Legos . We always do small rewards for good behavior. SOem might call it Bribery, but with my monsters you do what works LOL

  • Very rarely. I do not want them to expect it everytime. When it happens now they are so happy.

  • Only on certain occasions. We also do not want them to expect this every time. The people who came up with putting candy at the check out must never have had a kid throw a fit in a store. I hate him! lol

  • Once in a while we'll buy candy at the check out, but usually we pick out the snack size candy bars the 8 for $1 pack to share. By doing the small ones they get a treat with out so much sugar, besides candy bars are up to about $1 a piece at Wal-Mart. I have 4 kids so that would come out to $4 a trip that is too much money wasted on candy IMO.
