Some Spooked Cities Ban Teenage Trick-or-Treating - ABC News
I think all the teenagers in town ought to TP his house.
Our town has a ban on egg selling the week before Halloween. Over 18 only.
I don't like seeing older teens out begging for candy. It's just another sign of arrested development in my opinion. Grow the hell up. There are certain rites of passage into adulthood and I don't see us promoting that much these days. Santa Claus and the Great Pumpkin are for children.
We've had a few parents dressed up with bags in hand, accompanying their children. No pride I guess.
T & T is scheduled for Saturday night, and living close to the college campus I'll have a .38 in my back pocket when I answer the door. Don't get me wrong- I love the tradition and treating the kids but there's been some crazy shit going on around town.
Put a sign on your lawn that reads:
"Kids Only, No Teens or Adults Please".
Or something similar.
I just can't see trick-or-treating surviving as a custom much longer. Too fraught with danger for everyone involved. Help set up a fun Halloween party for little ones (or a scarey one for teens) and forget going door to door.
As a kid, there was one house in particular that everyone loved because the guy would tape coins to the bottom of candy bars. Maybe a nickle or dime, but if you were lucky you'd get a quarter.
Don't forget how fun it was for you once upon a time. Make it fun for kids now.
I don't mind the teens if they are out having a good time and are respectful. The ones I hate are the ones who show up at your door without a costume and demand candy
I don't know what's wrong with today's youth
Teens shouldn't be trick or treating. Have they no pride at all?
They ought to be out committing acts of pointless vandalism like we did.
We felt too embarrassed to by about age 13 I remember. It was considered too babyish.
