Is 11 Years Old Too Young To Trick Or Treat Without Parents – Daily Dilemma [AUDIO]

Happy Halloween my friends. Today we had a few Halloween dilemmas to choose from and I think we picked the right one. I have to tell you I was a little surprised at the calls we got. I am all for child safety but I don’t think I was ready for the level of fear many parents have about their children. I suppose this is much better than the alternative.

Here is the dilemma we had today: “My daughter turns 11 this year. In a couple years she’ll be too old for trick-or-treating. This year, she wants to go with friends. She is at that age where everything us parents do, embarrasses them. I’m okay with just letting her be with her friends. However, are 11/12-year old kids too young to be going out on Halloween without adults.”
Remember, if you have a dilemma to share with us just e mail us here at the show at and tune in every weekday morning at 6:40 am to hear that days new dilemma. Here is what you all had to say about this little girl trick or treating with her friends.
