Does Bringing My Own Candy TO The Movies Make Me A Bad Mother? – Daily Dilemma [AUDIO]

Wow! People really responded to this dilemma. I have to admit that before we did it, I didn’t think it would be such a hot button for people. Maybe the movie theaters need to take another look at how they make their money. I know that the majority of the actual ticket sales go to paying for the movie and the concessions are where they make most of their money. I guess the question is, if the tickets were higher priced, but the concessions were cheaper would you still go to the movies or maybe,  would you go more?

Let’s see what our listener wrote in: “Recently my sister and I took our kids to see the new movie, “The Muppets.” I have three kids, ranging in age from 3 to 11. When we got to the theater, we got our seats and I reached into my purse to pull out my assortment of candy for my kids. My sister told me I was setting an example of stealing in front of my children. And we are still arguing over this topic a week later.”
