But at what age do you let your kids go trick or treating by themselves with friends with no supervision?
I don't want to be a hover parent, but I also love my children and know there are awful people in this world. I have a ds 9 and dd 10, dd is away at science camp so all alone ds for Halloween. The neighbor kids were gone and his friends had plans. So we called the cousins a 9 and 12 year old, And mom said they were going out trick or treating with friends and ds was welcome to join. We passed and dh took him out in our neighborhood , while I stAyed home with dd 1 week.
