The parents on Halloween have turned into total helicopter parents. One time, I saw a group of teens trick-or-treating, and their parents were with them like they were little kids. Hunh? Almost even worse was when I saw kids and their friends out last year, and one of their fathers was following them around in his pickup truck.
These overprotective parents think that their children cannot leave their sight without them being kidnapped or sexually assualted, even in the quietest of neighborhoods. Thess people need to sit back, relax, and get a life. They're ruining their kids' social lives, and making it harder on themselves, too. Don't they realize that the recent technological advances, children today are safer than ever?
Another thing I've noticed in recent years is the measures moms and dads will go to to check if the Halloween candy has been poisoned, even when the wrappers are clearly untampered with.
Yep, Halloween sure has changed.
