Mom always gives her young kids a piece of candy to keep them quiet when situated in their car seats while riding in the car.
She is conscientious when it comes to her youngsters having the best. She knows to protect them should any kind of hazard on the road put them in harm’s way.
“I don’t fool around when it comes to my kids’ safety, health, recreation or anything else that would make them suffer,” she said with great pride and a very noticeable I know what’s best attitude.
Mom told me she had paid upwards of $300 for each of the Britax Advocate Click Tight car seats her candy-sucking offspring are strapped into as she drives them hither and yon.
It’s been years since I’ve been the overseer of a kid in a car seat so I know nothing about this Britax Adocate of hers that cost as much as a car I purchased back in the 60‘s
Things have changed a lot since the “old days,” but the ills of what candy does for – or better said – against, children’s teeth has remained constant in the minds of many parents.
We been told by the elders, and maybe it isn’t true at all, that candy is too much sugar, it rots teeth and it causes cavities. Another question is raised about this safe and quiet ride in the luxury car seats, and that is: how okay is it for her to bribe the kids with sugar?
The American Academy of Pediatrics says it isn’t okay because “If you position candy as the ultimate goals in your child’s mind, then it can be detrimental by causing a reward relationship with food.”
Reports say with one in three American kids being classified as obese, childhood obesity has become the number one health concern of parents.
But Mom has her eye on everything that provides safety for her kids.
But the truth about this ride in their luxury seats is that it isn’t just candy that’s keeping her kids quiet; they’re working the latest electronic gadget that’s keeping young thumbs busy to the constant sound of their jaws perpetually sucking up sugar.
