I was talking to my sister and her kids about haloween and found out both my nieces arent trick or treating this year...my sister thinks they are too old for it now...I completely disagree!!! Her children are 14 and 12(almost 13). I could tell BOTH of them were not happy with this but wont argue with thier mother about it...I feel kinda bad for them! I KNOW if I pressed the issue and told my sister we will take them with us that she would probably relent and let it happen...would i be overstepping? Should i stay out of this and mind my own business or try to help my nieces out? Do you think they are too old??? At what age do you stop letting your kids trick or treat?

I was like your sister. when my kids hit 12,13. My kids stopped going .I think trick or treating is for young kids. Kids that old should be going to Halloween parties. And on the flip side. My kids didn't not go trick or treating under school age. My oldest didn't know what it was before kindergarden, so I never brang her.

I think when they feel they are too old. She is your sister, I think it would be OK to suggest they may still want to go and leave it at that so it doesn't turn into an argument. I stopped at 15. I did sneak in one more at 26. I was in costume and my brother took me. Not one person turned me away, thought it was funny.

As long as they put out some effort towards a costume like make up or funny shirt I don't mind any age.Oh and are polite.I always buy 2 Costco bags of candy any way and my children collect so much so I'm happy to get rid of the candy.
