I can’t protect my daughter from everything. I know that. But there are decisions I can make now that will help equip her to live the healthiest life she can live as she grows up. One of the things I focus on a lot is her health.
For that reason, I rarely allow my daughter to eat sugary treats. In fact, I use every sugar coated opportunity to teach her the sour facts about not eating well.
Now that she is accustomed to my refusal of permission towards junk food, imagine her surprise when we were at a friend’s house this week, and I handed her a bowl of ice cream.
