The lead plaintiff in the suit is a Sacramento mother of two named Monica Parham. Part of her complaint is that McDonald's "uses toys as bait to induce her kids to clamor to go to McDonald's." Put the brakes on Monica. Not the car brakes to stop at the golden arches, the brakes on your excuse making. You are the parent, try acting like one. Cape Coral parent Dave Pangburn characterized Monica's excuse as "the tail wagging the dog." He's right. Look, the Fitness Examiner is a parent too. No, it's not always easy to tell your kids no but kids are always clamoring for something. If you can tell your child no when they want a $60 video game, why can't you say no to a $3 Happy Meal?
