At what age should kids stop trick or treating? My daughter is 17 and said she was going but now she has to work instead.

does help if you bring a few kids with you

Grade 8. When you have a job you can afford to buy your own.
I told her to go the day after Halloween and get her candy half price.

I find that unfair, not all older kids are like that.
I think that if the kids are respectable and taking part properly they should be able to until 16-18 if they want too.
Technically speaking kids with allowances are capable of buying their own candy, should they not go ToT?
I didn't have my first job until 18, nor did I have an allowance, so it's unfair to assume that all kids in high school can buy their own.

I dont put an age. My ds will be gr 8 next year. He will want to go out. He might be older but he functions 3yrs below his age. he has been hasseled for being older and getting really excited and bumping into kids. He always makes sure kids are oky. He is not trying to be mean. Not fair for people to say kids are too old when they dont know the child

I think if the person put some effort in to a costume and is respectful of the younger kids out trick or treating, then the age shouldn't be such a big deal. My 13 year old is so excited to go this year, he thought last year he was ready to give up trick or treating and opted to go to his cadet meeting instead, and afterwards he was so disappointed he didn't go out. So he's got his costume ready and he's going tonight. Kids are still kids, even when they are teens, and some older kids still love all the holidays and traditions that go along with them, same as we do as adults.

The year you decide putting actual effort into something is too much of a bother.

I would probably deny a rude teen, but otherwise I really couldn't care less. Ppl take life way too seriously sometimes! It's for fun!!

Absolutely agree with Jill. It shouldn't be about who can afford what. It shouldn't be all about the candy. Stop handing out candy at all if you are going to act like Scrooge.

I don't care about the age as long as they are polite and have made an effort to dress up.
