I put a call out on the AJCMomania Facebook page for blog ideas and one friend/reader posted a great one: Would you let your child dress like a murder from movies?
She is so bothered by the Texas Chainsaw killer or Michael Myers from “Halloween” costumes marketed to kids. “Totally inappropriate,” she writes.
How do you feel: Is it all in good fun and OK to let kids pretend to be something scary? Is the “Scream” mask better than the others? What about the Jason mask from “Friday the 13”?
Is there an age where those costumes are OK — high school? Do colleges frown on those? Are they allowed to wear those in college or are they seen as threatening?
