Local commerce supports young childrens' need for sugar
Emma: Trick or Treating is a wild adrenaline rush that knows no boundaries.
Maddy: New York City is fast, friendly and unforgiving. So, no matter how tall you are you have to get your candy bucket up in the air and demand to be seen. Your attitude has to be, "I may be 3, but acknowledging my power is the smart thing to do."
Daddy: In a haze, my brave children approached our local merchants and saw which ones were pro youth, and which were pro corporate greed. Citibank, Chipotle, 5 Guys and the Vitaminne Shoppe had no candy for kids. The local shoe repair shop did. The kids sugar rush peaked, spinning around, yelling "Sugar, sugar, sugar."
