Today’s OPP is from Candy! Here is her dilemma! 


Hi Slacker and Steve, I am currently a nanny and I love my job, the children, and the parents. The dad works from home in the basement and don't see him much except the few times a day he comes upstairs. When he does come up the children get excited and go talk to him. They always ask him for a treat such as candy or cookies and he usually gives it to them. However, giving the children candy and such at 7:30 am and multiple times through the day makes them very naughty for me. I don't know if I should say something because he is the parent and I don't want to cross any boundaries. But the children refuse to eat and listen after they had all that sugar. Please help!! –Candy


What can Candy do to correct this issue without over-stepping her boundaries?

Candy is a nanny who watches over naughty children. The children are unruly because their father who works from home gives them candy all day, even at night. She wants to correct this behavior but doesn't want to over step her boundaries. What should she do?
