Yes, if this is your first year as a parent and you have your kids all dressed up and ready to hit the neighborhood or local businesses to grab some candy, know that you are entitled to a "Parent Tax" and you can grab up to 10% of your kid's candy.

10% is a heavy price to pay but think about all you do for your child to get them all set to go trick or treating. You go and buy or make a costume. Chances are your kid has changed their mind like a thousand times of what they want to go as. That is after you had already made or bought two or three costumes already.

So as your kids dump out all their treats onto the floor and get ready to spot them out by types, likes, dislikes, and which ones are tradable you better make sure that they start a pile for the parent tax.

Also as a parent, don't fall into the trap that a lot of moms and dads do. I will just eat what they don't like. NO! you earned that sweet delicious bit of goodness with all the sweat equity you put into the costume, walking around the neighborhood, and if you have little ones, you probably carried them more than half the time.

So to make it easy for your kids to understand which candy you will be collecting this Halloween as part of the "Parent Tax" you can just show your kids the pictures below and make sure they put these candies in the "Parent Tax" pile.
