Okay so today's social dilemma came about while I was handing out candy last night for Halloween. I love Halloween. I'm lucky enough to live in a neighborhood where we get lots of kids. There were over 150 of them last night. But there was something that happened about 10 or 11 times and I wanted to know how you handle it. The doorbell would ring, it would be a mom or dad holding a baby. And I don't mean a two year old, I mean a baby. Under the age of one. The baby had no idea what was going on. But the mom or dad would come to the door and say trick or treat and have a bag for candy. Now I don't mind giving out candy to anyone, but c'mon, that baby is NOT going to be eating this candy. I always ask if there's another little one around, and they say no. So I give them the candy, and off they go. Now, if those parents want candy, or they're just so excited about Halloween that they're starting the tradition early, I say, just be straight about it. I'll give you the candy, but let's be real, it's for you, not for the baby. Sometime they would get offended when I would ask if there was another little one around. Oh well. So did this happen to you last night? If so or if it's happened in the past, how did you handle it. Hey, it s a fun day, so I just give up the candy. But I still wish there was more honesty about it. What about you? Let me know on the TRY Facebook page.
