Trick or Treat: How Young Is Too Young?

The night of wicked witches, goblins, and wizards has arrived. It's only five o'clock, but your 8-year-old is eager to get first dibs on the neighborhood Halloween candy stash. He's on the porch, commanding you to "Hurry up!" in his deepest monster voice. You turn to your 2-year-old, stick on her fairy wings and dash out the door.
