Why do people think that trick or treating for teens is wrong? I recently read that a town in Virginia is charging teens with a MISDEMEANOR and charging a fine of at least $25 for any child over the age 12 that is caught trick or treating. WHAT?!?
As a mom of a teenager, I will encourage my son to come trick or treating with us. Why? Let us use our imagination on where else our teenagers could be or what else they could be doing!
They could be sitting in front of the TV playing video games … I’d rather to have them walking around the neighborhood and having some human interaction.
Even worse than that, maybe the teen you see trick or treating is physically 12+ years old, however, has a disability and he is much younger mentally. Let them trick or treat & pass out candy.
Last time I checked, candy wasn’t just for children!
In a world that puts SO MUCH pressure on our kids to grow up, let them have fun! Let them run around, collect candy and goof off!
You never know what kids are dealing with, let’s share some love and give them chocolate!
