    Adult sized teens T or Ting is somewhat dubious, but middle schoolers should totally be doing so! That said, we get a bunch of high schoolers, maybe up to 9th or 10th grade, knock at our door. I'd rather my teen be T or T ing in our neighborhood than at a teen Halloween party! (DD is 11 and plans to T or T with her pals.)

    Wear a costume, be polite and keep on ToT'ing into the teen years. Heck, I'll happily give candy to adults under the same rules. I don't need the candy.

    Usually around here they stop after 8th grade.

    I'm happy if a kid has put the effort into a cool costume, and have seen some high schoolers go all out, and am happy to give them some candy!

    Silly story: A couple of years ago, a friend of mine who's a very young beginning teacher decided to go T or Ting with us. She thought it would be funny to dress up and T or T too, since she can pass for a teen.

    One of the first houses we went to, one of her students answered the door and yelled, "OMG IS THAT YOU MS. L??" My friend was so embarrassed. The kids were all teasing her the next day for trying to act like a kid. She T or Ted with us again this year and I noticed she held back from going to any doors :-) but the parents all thought she was a teen and would insist she come get some candy too.

But I'm going to push him to go, either with us or with his friends. Last year he went to only 2 houses then had to go home (he'd suffered a bad concussion just a couple days prior, and was very weak and dizzy).
    My DS1 is the same age and the same size! I think he's planning on going.

    Right. DS1 is "only" 5'9.5" tall but taller and bigger than many men and with a voice that sounds like a man, lol.

    Don't think there should be an age limit...
