Interesting social dilemma on this Halloween. I always wonder how to handle these situations too. Here goes:
Hi Jaime. With Halloween right around the corner, I have a social dilemma for you. How old is too old to trick or treat? My son who is 16 wants to go out trick or treating. I told him I thought that he was too old for it. He's a young 16 and he still really enjoys dressing up. I want him to be able to go and have fun but I worry that people will not want to give him candy because of his age and his height - he's almost six feet tall. Is there an age cutoff for trick or treating or should be my son be allowed to go and have fun. Thank you so much Jaime. I will be listening to hear what you and others have to say. Have a happy Halloween and enjoy giving out candy! ~ Bonnie
Here's how I feel about Halloween. I don't care how old the kid is who comes to my door as long as they are in costume. I'll give candy to adults as long as there is a costume involved. I don't like it when anyone comes with no costume at all, cause that's just like asking for free food. Though I can't lie, I do end up giving them candy too, I just call them out for it. What about you? Do you think there should be an age limit for Halloween?
