    It only has to last until Easter. Though since you get less candy then, perhaps some restraint is needed.

    “I Feel The Need, The Need For Greed”

    Maybe if Brad showed her that movie, “A Few Good Dentists”…. “You want the tooth? You can’t handle the tooth!”…

    Brad, have her sit down and eat it all now. In fact, make sure she eats it all. If she gets an upset tummy or feels miserable from eating it all, perhaps it might register in her gray matter. After all, she wants it now. Some times we need to learn that what we want can turn out to be not what we really want…

    And, she can see that Brad was right in making it last a while. In moderation, shall we say.

    As an experienced parent, the problem with that is once she is in the throes of a tummy-ache, at her age, she will not equate the ache with the action, all she ill know is that it hurts…

    I think, that at 6 years old (or so), Shannon will be able to equate the fact that she did not have the tummy ache prior to eating all the candy, and if Brad/Toni reinforce in her mind that that will be the result of eating too much candy at one time and it happens, she will most probably realize they were right.

    .

    Case in point: When my son, Brian was between two and three years old, if you held him while standing near the dining table, he would reach out for one of the light bulbs on the chandalier. A 60 watt, small envelope, candelabra bulb runs pretty hot. Many times we would see his little hand reach out to touch a bulb and pull him away while saying “No touch, HOT!” At that age, he could not equate the word “hot” with pain. Many times other people or family members would be holding him while near the dining table, and that little hand would go that direction. One evening, he reached for one of the bulbs, and I said, “NO, Hot!” But this time I decided to let him touch it, knowing I would quickly pull him away on contact. He was looking straight at me. Out goes his little hand, one finger extended. So, he touches the bulb. You would have thought we were killing him. I pulled him back so fast, there was no time for it to burn and blister. I think it surprised him more than anything. After that, he knew what “hot” meant. Even at his age.

    .

    Now, before someone rails on me and suggests that if he wanted to run out in front of a moving car to see if it hurts, would I let him do that – no, that would never happen. Gee, I’m mean.

    I say let them pig out till they are sick. Might kick their habit of sugar our parents saddle us with.

    That is basically how we connect feelings to words.

    Actually, I too, had the experiences you relate about your son…. it only took one scratch from my pet cat to find out that it was going to hurt me , worse than it hurt him if I tugged on his tail…. I also learned a painful lesson, to never walk in front of someone on the swings… and with the momentum that it brings, that people (and shoes) are not made of feathery, cushiony material…
    -
    I’ve since learned the value of worded warnings, myself… it sure beats having unpleasant experiences happening all of the time for one to get the point….

    @IamJayBluE

    I had a few experiences like that myself. It is a wonder I didn’t end up with a square head. It is also a wonder that, when I was younger, I didn’t think my name was “NO, NO!”

    Would’ve been hilarious, come attendance taking time, and job interview time….
