Parents, do your best to keep your kids safe this Halloween.
While kids look forward to Halloween as a day of fun, parents know that there are serious risks lurking about. A safe Halloween is a happy Halloween, so make sure your child has the best Halloween ever with these safety tips.
This year, one of the biggest threats your child faces is a traffic accident. Make sure your child is visible to drivers by encouraging them to choose costumes made of light colored materials. Additionally, you should decorate your child’s costume and candy bag with reflective tape to make sure they are seen. Another way to reduce your child’s risk of a traffic accident is to make sure they only cross streets at crosswalks. Finally, minimize your child’s chances of getting hit by a car by preventing them from darting in and out of traffic.
Another important safety consideration is to make sure your child never goes out alone. Accompany younger children as they trick-or-treat and make sure older kids go out with a group of friends that you know and trust. If your child is going out without you, make sure you map out their route together. This way you can be sure that they stay in safe and familiar neighborhoods. Before your child goes out, review “stranger danger” with them and make sure they know that they should never enter someone’s house or accept a ride without asking you first.
Finally, make sure your child’s candy is safe this Halloween. Feed them a full meal before they leave and ask them not to eat anything while they’re out. Once your kids return, check all their candy and discard any unwrapped, unlabeled, or homemade treats. Additionally, if your child has any food allergies or sensitivities, remove any treats that might pose a risk. Finally, though it may be difficult, do your best to limit your children’s sugar intake. Your kids will no doubt protest, but do your best to avoid any unnecessary tummy aches.
