I was not allowed any sweets - including ice cream, probably not including fruit, since that's not cane sugar - until after I was four. Mom wanted me to have good teeth. Then, a trip to the dentist who said I had a cavity and she said "oh well" and lifted the ban. The dentist was a quack and probably made it up it later turned out. (Even as a kid, I thought it odd he could diagnose things without even opening our mouths! No X rays either.) Oh well. But, just to say, it does happen. I know parents whose kids can't eat after 6 PM either. Discipline is good, I think.Originally Posted by Debb70;3902164;
T & D's household does not seem too disciplined to me, but who knows? It's television.
