Mayor Mark Eckhert of Belleville, Ill., created an ordinance banning high-school teenagers—that is, anyone over the age of 12—from trick-or-treating.
With a few exceptions such as special needs kids/adults who will never mature beyond childhood, etc; I think it would be a good idea. Last year while taking my 2yr old & 4yr old daughters trick or treating we saw several teenage girls who looked more like nasty, skanky strippers & prostitutes. I was really appalled & disgusted that my children saw that trash (YES I said TRASH). I don't live in the city, nor did we go to the city to trick or treat. We live in a rural area. Even some of the "moms" w/ small kids were dressed like trash; what kind of example does that set? There's a time to dress up in sexy attire, trick or treating w/ kids isn't one of them.

Next question overall
Should there be an age limit on trick or treating?
