Dealing with Scary Halloween Costumes

So a neighbor warned us that the cool place to trick-or-treat often includes bigger kids in scary costumes… Now I am worried my daughter is going be terrified. How do you warn your kids about what they might see on Halloween night?

  1. I have this concern as well. Halloween is one of my favorite holidays, but I bet things can be pretty scary from a kids perspective. I guess I will just explain that the costumes are just pretend, and try to avoid the really scary stuff.

    1. Fingers crossed for us both! I went to a Halloween party for kids sponsored by my husband’s job two weekends ago, and was shocked than an adult present wore a very scary costume. Kids were terrified and I found it odd that he would wear that to a kids party targeted at the under ten crowd.

  2. I will be hoping that my girls are too busy running from door to door to worry about what others are wearing, and will try to steer clear if I see something that might be too scary for them!
