Have you ever seen these pictures taken by this artist?
In case you are wondering, method really does have this affect and I am convinced that whoever coined the phrase "as easy as taking candy from a baby" forgot the instant security alarm feature.
I was happy to see, however, that this tactic does not work for my four (almost) and six year old.
Now, although I did not take the suckers away for strictly photographic reasons (a whole sucker for a baby? I don't think so!), I never truly saw what all of the outrage was about against her. I am much more opposed to child film stars and the things they make those children do for "art and entertainment's" sake than 30 seconds without a lolipop. Or if we are advocating for children, why not speak up for the ones who will die from hunger, let alone ever see a lolipop.
If you give a toddler a sucker...they'll want to eat the stick as well.
