    How do you control all the candy your kids got trick or treating?

    I only allow 3-4 pieces a day... We have so much that I let them use the candy as money to buy extra tv time or game time over the next few weeks. It helps cut down on the large amount we aquired and is educational too!

    I hid my little angels chocolate some where he couldn't reach when he went  to sleep. Then I tell him he can choose 1 piece after his dinner but only if he eats every thing off his plate first and he even eats his broccoli for it.

    I think what you are doing is great using it as currency to watch TV and stuff, you could only also reward them with the candy they gave you to watch TV if they do their chores, it teaches them how the real world is; you spend money to do things that you enjoy, and you work to make more money! (Substitute the money with candy obviously lol)
