    If Candace Cameron Bure Called The Shots On "Full House"

    The star (and mom!) imagined with BuzzFeed Life how the Tanner house might have been different if she'd been in charge.

    by ,

    DJ Tanner is all grown up. Now the star of Hallmark's Aurora Teagarden Mysteries, premiering this week, mom of three Candace Cameron Bure stopped by the BuzzFeed offices to weigh in on some of Danny Tanner's most eyebrow-raising parenting moments.

    Scenario One: Danny thought that DJ's boyfriend Viper was a real rebel and even tried to break them up.

    Would Candace do the same if she didn't like someone her child dated?

    There was no hesitation. Team Danny all the way.

    Scenario Two: When Danny and Vicky got serious and decided to make dinner for the family, Danny gave Michelle and Stephanie $5 each to behave themselves and pretend to like her cooking.

    Would Candace bribe her kids for good behavior?

    "I don't have a medium option!" she joked, before admitting "I'm sure that I have."

    Scenario Three: When DJ's boyfriend Steve got his first apartment, DJ accidentally fell asleep on his couch and missed her curfew. By hour two Danny was peeking through Steve's windows to see what she was up to.

    Would Candace spy on her teens?

    "I totally would!"

    Scenario Four: When Stephanie was pressured to smoke, Danny told her that it was up to her to decide if she wanted to be friends with the kids who pressured her -- he wouldn't stand in her way.

    What would Candace do?

    Macey J. Foronda / BuzzFeed

    "I don't know how to answer that. I don't want them to [have friends who are bad influences] but they need to make her own choice. I'll say agree."

    Scenario Five: When ten year old DJ illegally won $100,000 in a slot machine, Danny said she had to give the money back.

    Would Candace make her kids return the dough?

    Macey J. Foronda / BuzzFeed

    "I can't lie."

    Scenario Six: DJ goes to the drive-in with a boy who is known not to take "no" for an answer. Danny and the Uncles track her down and crash her date.

    Could Candace ever see herself showing up on her kid's date?

    Macey J. Foronda / BuzzFeed

    "I'm like actually really thinking about these questions. That's how tired I am. But, no she was old enough to be on a date."

    Scenario Seven: The Tanner girls were always bringing home new pets without permission. DJ bought a horse. Michelle bought a donkey. Danny wasn't having either.

    If Candace's kids brought home a pet without her knowledge, would she make them take it back?

    Macey J. Foronda / BuzzFeed

    "No, I'd keep it."

    Scenario Eight: When Grandma Tanner came to visit Danny asked everyone to act helpless so she would feel needed.

    Would Candace ask her kids to lie to make someone feel better?

    Macey J. Foronda / BuzzFeed

    "Lying, not happenin' in my house."

    Scenario Nine: Danny let DJ hang around with Kimmy even though she was constantly getting in to trouble.

    Would Candace let her child be best friends with a Kimmy Gibler?

    Macey J. Foronda / BuzzFeed

    "Kimmy Gibler is still my best friend."

    Scenario Ten: When DJ got a royal blue sweater for Valentine's Day and the school gardener shredded it with his lawnmower, Steph stole her a new one. After Joey caught them, Danny made the girls return the sweater, but ultimately no one was punished.

    Would Candace's kids get off with a reprimand for shoplifting?

    Macey J. Foronda / BuzzFeed

    "No way! They stole!"


    Yes or no -- the pillow person was a better nighttime cuddle companion than Mr. Bear.

    Macey J. Foronda / BuzzFeed

    "Mmmm, I loved Mr. Bear, but the Pillow Person was mine."

    Is sharing a bedroom with your sibling better than having your own bedroom?

    Macey J. Foronda / BuzzFeed

    "Uh, YEAH!"

    Yes or No -- Hot Daddy and the Monkey Puppets, a better band than Jesse and the Rippers?

    Macey J. Foronda / BuzzFeed

    "No way, Jose. Jesse and the Rippers RULE."

    Catch Candace as the title character in the first of nine films, A Bone To Pick: An Aurora Teagarden Mystery, premiering April 4th on Hallmark Movies & Mysteries.
