Sugar and Kids
I currently manage a busy Frozen Yogurt store, there are constantly children running around, screaming and being crazy (it's not as fun as it sounds ...). As one can assume, I constantly hear the phrase "Oh no, you guys are going crazy from all this sugar!" - While I already knew this to be true, I got a laugh while reading the chapter while at work. It's of interesting note that these same children are typically the children that come into the store already acting out, their behavior does not change after eating the sugar - the parents just become less tolerant and typically result to yelling at them and threatening them with throwing out their sundae (to which they never follow through). I'm a firm believer that the behavior of the children are direct reflection of a combination of things such as: Being at an ice-cream store that picking out their own toppings/flavors, and, unfortunately, poor parenting styles.
