Ice Cream Truck Wars

The New York Times ran a piece this week about parents complaining about the constant presence of ice cream trucks/vendors near playgrounds, outside schools, and on their blocks. Their beef? That they’re tired of dealing with their children begging for ice cream all the time.

I understand their point, but also feel like parents should feel okay about saying a firm “no” to their children, perhaps with an explanation of why–that they only get ice cream after dinner, that it’s cheaper to buy it from the store, etc.

What do you think?
