I honestly don't see what the big deal is. The parents normally send a healthy breakfast. Which, to me, means they are trying. One day they send a treat for breakfast. One day. I don't see why that...

I agree 100%. Also—and I realize that the family in question is a whole different league than this and I do not agree with what they are doing. However, I don't think children whose parents are on...

That's definitely not enough. At that age, my daughter was still drinking about 28 oz of breast milk every day (in a 24-hour period, not just at daycare). It kind of seems like she is trying to get...

I agree. What happens when the other kids start to pick up these same words? You could lose other families because of it. If the family isn't willing to work with you to make the behavior stop, I'd...
