AM I A BAD MOTHER FOR NOT ALLOWING MY CHILDREN TO GO TRICK OR TREATING?
I keep getting asked what are my two boys dressing up as this Halloween & I say nothing & Whoever asked their faces drop. They will only be dressing up if they are going to a Halloween party. They will not be going around the doors trick or treating.
You are probably thinking why? I know it’s exciting for kids just like it was for me when I was younger. But I didn’t see or know the dangers then like I do now. Now you are probably thinking what bloody dangers? Maybe my anxiety takes over I don’t know but I don’t like the idea of it anymore. I have seen so much in the media or on social media about drugs now looking like sweets so they are appealing to children. You could ask who would be sick enough to give them out on Halloween? But you just don’t know who is behind the door, Dont trust anyone you do not know.
TRICK & TREATS AT HOME!
My sister said well I don’t give mine anything that are not in wrappers. But thinking about it how easy could it be to rewrap? Very easily done. I do feel bad but I would never ever forgive myself if they ate something that could harm them. Last year they went to a Halloween party & The year before that I bought them a little Halloween bucket each & Filled it myself with little bits & Bobs, Then we went out & Watched fireworks down the seafront. They were happy & Enjoyed it which is the main thing.
This year we will be doing the same but staying in doing Halloween themed activities, Watching movies & Getting all snug in the living room with our blankets, Takeaway & Sweets. There is a Halloween party at school in November so they can still dress up.
What do you do on Halloween? How will you be spending it this year? Let me know.
