My family and other parents say I'm horrible for not allowing my two children to go trick or treating. My philosophy is simple. For 364 days every year we tell kids not to accept candy from strangers, but on Halloween we tell them it's okay. I don't agree with the logic and don't allow them to go trick-or-treating for their own safety. Everyone hates me for doing this. I'm just trying to protect my kids. I replace trick or treating with a candy scavenger hunt in the house. Am I wrong for canceling Halloween?
