Why Teenagers Should Go Trick-Or-Treating

I never get why there's even a debate over teenagers trick-or-treating, but every year there is. Most people don't have issues, but you get the few who think that once a kid turns 13, trick-or-treating should stop. Some states even have rules banning teens from going out on Halloween, which is bizarre. I think it's ridiculous, personally.


Here are reasons why teenagers SHOULD go trick-or-treating:








1. I mean, duh, at least they're not out getting into trouble. Teens could be doing so much worse than putting a costume on and getting candy. Just make sure they know their manners.





2. Sometimes it shows them responsibility. Some teens are in charge of younger siblings while the parent stays home to pass out candy.




3. They get exercise. Look, many teens are in their rooms sitting in front of video games. At least when they go trick-or-treating they're getting beneficial steps in.






4. It's fun! Being an adult is tough, so kids should have as much excitement as they can. Also, some parents want their teens to go out and bring home Reese's Peanut Butter Cups. *Shifty eyes*





So let your teens go trick-or-treating if they want to go! I'll let my kids do it until 18, but I'll be honest, I've had grown adults come to my home in costume and yes, I give them candy. It's a fun and silly day and people shouldn't take it seriously. I'd personally rather give candy to a teen with teeth than to a baby with no teeth. But that's just me.






How long did you trick-or-treat for? I think I stopped at 16 or 17.

  1. I trick-or-treated through the age of 17. It was a fun time with my friends and we were all behaving well. Fortunately, nobody who gave out candy in our neighborhood minded. I think they were grateful we weren't egging their house or cars. I also love bringing my teens with me--it's great family time. Why split up the family when we are all having a great time?!?

  3. I had no idea that some states banned teenagers from Trick or Treating. I can't remember when I stopped going, but I know I enjoyed every minute of it. I'm glad that you're allowing your kids to be kids for as long as possible.

  5. I love seeing older children helping out the younger ones. It does show them responsibility.

  6. I am so sad my son is 14 and he does not want to go this year. He has a Donald trump costume so maybe he will go if it does not rain

  7. I was trick or treating up until I was 14. I loved it so much and got a chance to hang out with my sister and cousins as we'd all go together. I love the costume by the way!

  9. These sound like some great reasons why teens should go trick or treating, it wasn't really a thing over here when I was young, so I never did it myself.

  10. We had trick or treating last Sunday and I loved seeing the smaller kids and teenagers. They were so happy that I had treats for them! It made me smile to see them smile.

  11. I say let the teens have fun. When the teens come to my house after my kids are done trick or treating, they get all the candy that my boys dont like and I give them big handfuls.

  15. I think everyone should be allowed to trick or treat! I would rather have grown kids coming to get candy at my house than any of the other things that they could be out doing!

  16. I think it's a great activity for people at any age, especially for kids and teenagers. Too bad it's not so popular here in Poland!:)

  17. Trick or treating is usually for younger kids, so it’s interesting to read another perspective about teenagers.

  19. Most of my trick or treaters this year were teens, and I am A OK with that. As far as I'm concerned, you're never too old for free candy! (Though I did stop when I was 17).

  20. I went to local farmers market last Sunday. Surprising, all vendors gave away treat to every customer, adult or kids.

  21. In India Halloween is not celebrated as a festival, unfortunately. I have always been fascinated by the Halloween traditions and costumes and would love to celebrate.

  22. I have never seen an issue with teenagers going trick-or-treating! However, I stopped at 12 after I unknowingly stopped at a classmate's house and he called me out for it. LOL. =)

  23. My boys are teens now and they're not excited to go trick or treating anymore. But these are great tips!

  24. Totally agree with you. Age shouldn't be any barrier when it comes to any celebration.

  25. Halloween is for everyone so if your teen wants to go trick or treating I say let them, especially if they can take the younger ones with them.

  26. I think I was 12 the last time I went trick or treating. I still would take kids I babysat and now my own and I STILL dress up because it is fun. I'm a big fan of kids of all ages going out trick or treating!

  27. We don't have a celebration for Halloween in India but it is celebrated in my kid's school as part of trying to make them aware of festivals world over. He will go trick or treating tomorrow and I am so excited about his dress. This is an informative article. Thanks for sharing. :)
