This is from today's Times - parents seeking to have ice cream trucks banned . . . I can fully understand rules about how close they can be to schools, etc., but as a health nut, I try to exercise restraint and moderation when it comes to my kid's eating. There are some simple joys in life, like a once-in-a-while treat from the ice cream truck, that I think should be honored for her.
And as for the nagging - isn't it my job to just say "no" on any given day if ice cream's not a good idea? And if she can't stop badgering, to leave the playground/pool/etc.? But maybe I'm in the minority? Are you pro-Softee?
