The Man Cave: How to Know When Your Kid is Too Old to Trick or Treat

You've seen it, I've seen it. As Halloween nights winds up, the clientele at the door slowly morphs from sweet little kids in cute costumes to unenthusiastic adolescents looking for free handouts. There is no magic age, no line in the sand that determines when a kid is too old to trick or treat...but there are some tell-tale signs.

Chances are your kids are too old to trick or treat if:

10. Their voices are deeper this Halloween than they were last Halloween.

9. They have a locker at school.

8. They can ride every ride at every amusement park you go to.

7. They made their own costumes.

6. Their costumes are one accessory away from what they wear to school every day.

5. They want to go by themselves.

4. They can drive themselves.

3. Their candy bag is a pillow case.

2. They are taking two dozen eggs, six rolls of toilet paper, five rolls of fire-crackers they've been saving since last Fourth of July, and no pillow case.

1. They have facial hair.
