What age is okay for kids to trick or treat on their own?

At what age is it socially acceptable to go trick or treating with older siblings? Like, to go door to door to recieve candy.

Never… Only because I love going with.

I am gonna be heart broken when mine don’t want to go with me anymore :sob::sob::sob::sob::sob:

I second, depends on where you live. In my neighborhood, 10 seems to be reasonable.

Never alone. And Any age to trick or treat is fine. We give candy to everyone. Halloween shouldn’t have an age limit!

I wouldn’t do it lol. My kids have always had adults with them and my daughter is 14 this year! She’s mature too.

When they’re too old to trick or treat also meaning never… it’s not safe regardless of age

When she’s old enough to drive herself. Lol. Until then, Mom’s tagging along.

In today’s society with all the crazy child abductions, never. I’d always stay with my kids. I might let them walk up by themselves but I’d still be within a talking distance.

When they’re old enough to take their own kids :joy:
I wouldn’t trust anyone on Halloween.
kidnappers love this time of year because there’s lots of kids in costumes they can easily take off with and nobody would know.

My parents/aunt/uncles went with us until we stopped we were in our teens. It was more fun. And that was 20 years ago. We all go with my boys and cousins are not too far behind

13? My 11 yr old will have a parent with him

This day and age? Never

By the time they’re old enough to do this , they won’t even want to. So never.
