According to my newphew, Anson, his mother's solution to a child's constant begging for candy is to let him go right ahead and eat all the loot in one sitting. Anson told us that this is what his brother did about 12 years ago. His brother was so sick that his parents had to put him in the bathtub until all the candy exited his body through one route or another.
It might not be a bad idea but I'm pretty sure they had hardwood floors. We have carpet and I don't think I would be able to keep my wild monster in the bathtub. But it is supposed to be a nice day today and I might be able to lock them outside on the deck. Hmm.
