his DD is 6 and in 1st grade. we have her full time. bio mom took off when she was 2 months old. anyway kid has had serious behavior issues since school started this year. we have tried everything we know to do, testing for add and other "disorders"...sticker charts, rewards, privliges taken, spanking...etc even the teacher and school has run out of ideas to curb her behavior. at home its fine..at school horrible. anyway due to absolutely the worst behavior yet we decided she will not be trick or treating and made her return her costume to the store.....SO wants to take it a step past that...we were originally supposed to go trick or treating with some friends of ours who also have kids....So still wants to go...and bring his daughter along and not let her dress up and participate and make her watch all the kids. i think this is just really mean and a little overboard.

I think either is bad. Punishment should be immediate and pertain to the offense

well it depends on what she did. but in most cases that would be going over board.

That way she'll realize what exactly she's missing. I think its a good idea.

I think her missing out is punishment enough. Having to go and watch the others partake seems over the top.

That's overboard. Something else is going on with that child.

denial of any holiday as punishment/discipline is cruel imo.


I don't know where the sunbeams end and the starlights begin; it's all a mystery.

sorry, I have to agree with your SO, because I would do the same.

Sounds like daddy might be the problem.

It's a little overboard IMHO. The punishment does not fit the crime. There's a reason she's acting out in school and not at home, maybe she doesn't like the teacher, maybe she feels picked on. If the teacher is out of ideas, transfer her to another one. It's kind of early in the year for a teacher to give up. Let your daughter see it as a positive step and a clean start.
