Is My Child Ready for a Haunted House?

When kids talk to their schoolmates about Halloween, they might come to you wanting a trip through the local haunted house attraction. But can they handle it? Chris Handa of Castle Blood has a guide for making that decision. Ask yourself some questions, like:
1. Can your family member differentiate between fantasy and reality?

2. If they get scared and cannot go on, how do you plan on dealing with it?

3. Can your group go through without disrupting another tour, even if a party member has a meltdown?

Chris goes into detail for each point, and encourages parents to investigate the specific attraction. Personally, I decided my kids could go to a haunted house when they were able to pay their own admission, and so far that's worked well. Link -via Metafilter
