Tips For Safe Trick-Or-Treating

Trick or Treating should be one of the great adventures of Halloween for kids! They can get dressed in scary costumes and go door to door, begging "Tricks or Treats!" from neighbors or at the local mall. It should be a fun time, without trouble and pain, so following some easy tips can keep your child safe every Halloween.

Children should only go out during daylight hours unless accompanied by a responsible adult.

Plan a safe route so parents know where their older kids will be at all times. Set a time for their return home. Make sure that your child is old enough and responsible enough to go out by themselves.

Let your children know not to cut through back alleys and fields. Make sure they know to stay in populated places and don't go off the beaten track. Stay in well lighted areas.

Stop only at familiar houses in your own neighborhood unless they are accompanied by an adult.

Small children should never be allowed to go out alone on Halloween. Make sure an teenage sibling or adult is with them.

Instruct your children not to eat any treats until they bring them home to be examined by you

Instruct your child to never go into the home of a stranger or get into their car no matter what the offer or what they ask. A well known ploy is the "lost pet" trick, tell your children not to listen or help any adult except for those they truly know.

Make sure your child carries a flashlight, glow stick or has reflective tape on their costume to make them more visible to cars.

Let teenagers know that they should stay together as a group if going out to Trick or Treat without an adult. There really is safety in numbers.
