If I buy costumes they get tried on and then go to the costume box in the basement, so I have never had a costume broken before used.

It happens.... I just have been fortunate to never have to turn my back..... although fitting costumes doesn't happen here often... we need them too big to go over snowsuits.

I am sorry that you had to spend money on  your son's costume and he did not appreciate it. Maybe you can let him go in his regular clothes for trick or treating. When you son see all the kids dress up in their costume he will regret what he did.

I never would have spent $50 in the first place, but that's just me...

I say let him stay home, it's just Halloween. It's a little harder when he has siblings who will still go out. And if the costume broke that easily I would have returned it.

How difficult. :( my dd used to cut her clothes. It was so frustrating! It will be hard, but I agree with your punishment of making him stay home. Hopefully he will think before he does something like that again.

It's harder on us sometimes to enforce the punishment. Not that I feel bad, usually, I just get sick of hearing mine whine. Lol

Please tell me you're not punishing your son because you spent too much money on a piece of garbage costume.

Just go to goodwill and get him something else.
