How DARE you do that with your child?!

So, I had a friend tell me just now that I shouldn't be taking Shane to go Trick or Treating since he's not even old enough for candy yet. 

Wtf? I'd be ok with him having "soft" candy in moderation, like a few M&Ms for a snack or a Reeses cup or something.. we're only getting him a small candy pail anyway.. I guess I don't see what's wrong with taking him door-to-door.


So my question is.. how old were your kids when you took them door-to-door Trick or Treating for the first time?

He'll be 16 months old on Halloween, btw.

My kids are 1 & 2 and I've taken them every year but I only do a couple houses. Mainly our neighbors that we are friends with. For the most part I just hand out candy at our house.

I've never taken my son door to door trick or treating. 


I agree with your friend. And I wouldn't give out candy to an infant.

my son was 2 years old. we were going to take him when he was 1 years old. but it was pouring down rain that halloween so we couldn't go.

my daughter will be 11 months old for halloween this year. so it will be her first halloween. we plan on dressing her up and taking her out.
