Stay Safe This Halloween
Halloween is approaching in less than a week and it’s likely you are working hard to get your children’s costumes together, you’re purchasing candy to hand out and you are hanging up decorations in preparation. There are some other items of business you should consider as well, in order to make sure you and your children stay safe this Halloween when you head out to go collect your candy.
- Help your children accessorize with things that will make them more visible. Many Halloween supply stores will sell a variety of products that will add a glowing light to a costume. This can be a glow stick necklace, a flashlight or a blinking chain.
- Practice crossing the street before the big day arrives. Smaller children should make sure they cross with an adult and not on their own.
- Make sure an adult will be accompanying your children whether it be you or a trusted neighbor.
