How old is too old to go out for Halloween

The age-old question of when children should stop trick-or-treating reared its head again this year.

Shanda Wilson a teacher at BVCS, said “several of my Grade 8 students were given a hard time by adults when they were trick-or-treating Halloween evening.

“One woman confronted a boy from our school and said ‘You are a little old to be trick-or-treating don’t you think?’ He replied that he was only 13 and was in elementary school. She said she didn’t believe him. I think if we are concerned about having a welcoming community in touch with young people (that) this should be addressed.”

So what are your thoughts?
