20 Struggles of every Parent during Halloween

It’s already October.  You know what it means, right?  Nope, forget about Fall.  We’re going straight for Halloween already.  There are a lot of people in the world who are pretty excited for this yearly celebration, simply because it gives them the chance to play dress up.  For parents, though, it could be a whole set of struggles they wish they didn’t have to deal with.  Below are just a few things that every parent may have to experience in preparation for this highly anticipated event.

They eat all the candy before Halloween

Oh, you know this one pretty well. Halloween is a week away and the kids can't help but stuff their faces with candy any chance they get! You keep finding empty wrappers everywhere and find all the candy you bought for trick-or-treating has been eaten already. You have to get clever and spend serious time making sure that stuff is hidden and hidden well.

When the stores start promoting goodies for Halloween

The first time you see this, you’ll probably be breaking into a sweat. You know that the aisles are going to be crowded as heck. There’s just going to be too many people competing to get the best stuff for the celebration.

Struggling to decide on their costume

They’ve already told you what they wanted. You spend hours on coming up with a costume for them, weeks even. By the time Halloween comes, they change their minds. You’d probably be tempted to spank them.

Trying out costumes because of pressure from your kids

As the parent, you’re the one who has to inspire the Halloween vibes into your kids. However, they won’t be so keen on playing dress up if you’re not up for it either. Hence, you’d have to play along. That means you’re going to have to put in additional effort. That’s all because you love your kids so much.

Getting sucked into joining traditions

“You’ve been BOOED.” Sound familiar to you? Yes, it’s one of those things that you wish you didn’t have to deal with. Sure, you may get free candies and treats, but hey, you’re so hipster you just want your family to have your own little celebration.
