Check out these tips to keep your kids safe this Halloween.
Fall is here! The weather is changing, and it is time to get ready for Halloween. Decorate the house, stock up on plenty of Halloween candy, and help your kids choose the perfect costume. However, as you get ready for the big night of trick-or-treating, it’s important that you talk to your kids about safety. Review these Halloween safety tips so that you’re well prepared to talk to your kids.
Be Wary of Strangers.
When trick-or-treating, your kids are interacting with plenty of strangers. While most are harmless, it’s important to be careful. Remind your children, never to enter anyone’s home and to be wary of any strangers.
Safety in Numbers.
You’re less likely to encounter dangers when you’re in a group of people. Encourage your child to pick a trick-or-treating buddy to stick with all night. That way, neither child is left by themselves. Additionally, ensure that there is adult supervision. Make the night a family affair and take your kids trick-or-treating! In that case, you can step in to help if there are any lurking dangers.
Watch Out for Cars.
With so many kids wandering the streets, driving can be a nightmare on Halloween. However, it’s not just drivers that have to look out for pedestrians. Remind your kids to be aware of their surroundings. Have them stop and look both ways before crossing the street. Additionally, make sure they’re visible. Add reflective tape to their costumes and blinking lights so that drivers are sure to see them in the dark.
