Another thread got me thinking-- not always a good thing But I've been thinking about this. I've never heard of using candy as a reward for good behavior in school except here on A to Z. My 8 year old daughter is not allowed to bring candy to school as a snack. When her birthday rolls around, I'm not allowed to send in candy-- or any other food-- as a celebration. Why are teachers allowed to give that same candy -- or any other food--as a reward?
