Children’s behaviour was the real Halloween treat

News Nov 06, 2009 Ancaster News

As a fairly new Dundas home owner with no young children, I experienced a very special Halloween treat. Kids from tiny tots to young teenagers streamed up to my door in every conceivable kind of costume to get a handout.

Without exception, they were unfailingly considerate, pleasant and polite. Although two choices in large containers were offered, the children did not allow greed to rule while helping themselves to the bowls of goodies.

Very proud

The parents of these children who were standing off to the side while their children went door-to-door should be very proud of their offspring.

The householders who greeted them were very proud of their exceptionally fine manners.

While I believe in the old saying that it takes a “village” to raise a child, the parents of these young children have assuredly given them a head-start.

What a thrilling Halloween treat it was for me to witness our younger generation in action.
