"If you make something a big deal as a parent your kids end up making it a
big deal. My mom always said just brush your teeth before bed and try not
to make yourself sick. Having permission to do something you don't
normally get to do kinda takes the fun out of it. I do the same with my
kids and they never gorge. They seem to have more fun counting and trading
with each other than actually eating it.
"You people sicken me! I came across this wbsite from www.time.com and i
was shocked! Halloween is one of the happiest holidays for children and
you're ruining it! You are parents, not children and you have forgotten
the incredible sadness a child feels, not only when their candy is taken
away from him/her, but also when the child gets to school the day after
and everybody tells how much candy they got. This is like taking christmas
away from somebody, and one night of candy won't kill anybody! And please
don't keep your children screened in a "perfect" world where everybody is
healthy and nothing bad ever happens. The real world will just come as a
shock to them later on, and the chances of their lives taking a wrong turn
is much greater. Please let the children have their candy. I'm going
trick-or-trating now and I am looking forward to eating candy, because in
Norway the parents have something called commons sense. Happy joykilling
day, all the parents of this wbsite! I r!
eally wish you the best of luck in destroying your children's joy and
"I really think parents need to lighten up. Halloween is one of the few days
kids get to be kids. Just put some of the excess up for later. ItÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s not
like you have to let your little pumpkin gorge him or herself. We do donate
some of our leftover candy which is a great idea, but really we all need to
concentrate on bringing things like recess back to school or something more
constructive than preventing our kids from getting too much candy at trick
"the real horror is that in West Africa, where Hershey sources much of its
cocoa, the scene is one of child labor, trafficking, and forced labor.
Despite almost ten years of commitments from Hershey and other major
chocolate companies to take responsibility for their cocoa supply chains and
improve conditions for workers1, significant problems persist. Abusive child
abor,trafficking, and forced labor continue to plague the West African cocoa
industry. The farmers in this region, which supplies the majority of the
worldÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s cocoa, live in poverty, while major chocolate corporations
continue to amass large profits.
