So how do you agree or disagree about sugar or candy?
Food and diets are big sticking points between divorced parents. Typically in Texas with a joint conservatorship you really have no control over what goes on at the ex’s house. In my situation, my daughter is prone to cavities. As much as we brush our teeth and floss daily, when she goes to my ex’s house she is not brushing her teeth. So I’ve built a special system with her about teeth brushing and made it a special process for her. When she goes to her dad’s house, she takes her brush with her and it’s a part of her routine. That way SHE initiates the activity rather than waiting for her dad or me to tell her to do it. I really can’t tell if she’s doing it or not but if it becomes a part of her routine it will be second nature to her. As for candy and sweets, I don’t have much candy in the house and if I do, I limit the number of pieces a day. How do you provide candy control
in your house?
