Giving away toothbrushes instead of candy? I my neighborhood that would have meant that by the next morning, there was a smoking vacant lot where a house had been.

I believe that telling a kid they can only have one "fun sized" candy bar a day is mean. I also noticed that none of the people who mentioned this said parents should set an example by not stealing any of their kid's candy.

Allow one treat a day for the first week or so after Halloween, and then work on tapering kids off of their stash, she says.

Meaning, you count out 12 pieces of candy per kid...and eat the rest yourself.
