What did she do to teach him a lesson? Instead of punishing him outright, she made him pass the rest of his candies to other kids. Was it too harsh or a necessary lesson in not being greedy?

Mom makes son learn Halloween lesson after rude behavior 🎃🍪

Halloween is the one holiday where kids get to overeat, but does that mean it's okay to be greedy? A mother shared her story on Reddit about her 9-year-old son's rude behavior during trick or treating. The boy grabbed more than his fair share of candy from a bowl and was corrected by his mother, but he continued to act out. In response, the mother took away his candy and made him sit outside with her to watch other kids take handfuls of it. Her husband disagreed with her approach, but the mother felt it was important for her son to learn a lesson about greed. What do you think? Was the mother too harsh, or was she doing the right thing by teaching her son about sharing and respecting others? Share your thoughts in the comments below.
