Question for you all (I'm working on an article and would love to include your feedback). Costumes, decorations, entertainment: Halloween -- how scary is too scary? Some of the replies I've had:
"As mom to little boys after having girls I thought my world would turn into lots of scary looking characters. But really that is NOT the case. They are just as scared of monsters and villains as the little girls."
"I guess anything that is super realistic as far as severed limbs or heads or whatever, or anything really satanic. I personally love Halloween, and I decorate the house and windows with all sorts of spooky things, but I keep it age appropriate for my little guys. I try to keep it more fun and keep the "evil" stuff out of it...if that makes sense."
My own kids each had different thresholds. One was pretty timid about anything scary. Another loved creating really creepy costumes, by the time she was six or seven. What do you think is too frightening for your kids?
