🍪🍫 Snack time drama alert! 🚨 As a mom of four, I thought I had it all figured out with my clever snack box system. 📦 Each kid gets their own box, decorated to their liking, filled with equal amounts of tasty treats. 🍬 It seemed like the perfect way to teach them about fairness and self-regulation. But when our friends' kids came over for a playdate, things took a turn for the worse! 😬 One little tantrum later, and I'm left wondering: am I the a-hole for not forcing my kids to share their precious snacks? 🤔 Let's dive into this sticky situation! 🍭

🍪 The Great Snack Sharing Showdown! 🥊

So, here's the deal: my 8-year-old didn't want to share her favorite snack cakes with our friends' 3-year-old, and all h--l broke loose! 😱 The toddler threw a tantrum, and my friend's spouse accused me of setting my kids up for future food issues and hoarding problems. 😳 They even suggested I leave some "good stuff" out for other kids to enjoy! 🍭 But I stood my ground, saying my kids know how to share, but I don't force them to share FOOD. 🍎 Now, I'm left wondering if I'm the a-hole in this snack-time saga. 🤷‍♀️ Let's see what the internet has to say about this tasty drama! 🍿
