Am I raising children or hungry wolves?

I grew up in a big family, and it was rare that my mom splurged on those yummy, high-priced treats like Oreos or Little Debbie snack cakes. But when she did buy them, she'd always issue a warning as she took them out of the bag - a sentence that puzzled me for years:

Gone. Immediately. Then they crave more. Aaaargh. How can the cookie jar be empty?? We just bought cookies! Why is there no ice cream?? We just bought ice cream!!

I swear, we're not going to buy those things again if they just keep eating them.
