While Halloween is fun for all ages. It can be a night of concern for parents.
Keeping Children Safe on HalloweenKeeping little ghosts and goblins safe during Halloween and trick-or-treat can be a struggle. But there are several steps to take to decrease risks for children during Halloween.
9 Things You Can Do To Improve Safety
- Always supervise children 12 and under while trick-or-treating
- If possible, try to have one adult per child while trick-or-treating
- Stick to areas you and your children already know in the daylight
- Don’t use masks or costumes that block a child’s vision or hearing. If you want to cover their face to match their costume, face paint is a good alternative
- Make sure your child is visible, if their costume is dark or easy to miss, think about adding glow sticks, flashlights or reflective gear on your child or their bag to increase visibility
- Say off the road as much as possible and on the sidewalk
- Only cross streets on designated crosswalks
- Avoid bouncing from one side of the street to the other, instead trick-or-treat all the houses on one side then come back up the street for the other side
- Put away your phone, they often contribute to pedestrians’ errors (like stepping out into the street or in front of cars), similar to their effect on driver error.
