Halloween is a fun holiday for families across the country, but parents, it’s time to set your child safety meters to be a tad more sensitive than usual.  When so many costumed children take to the streets at once, it’s can be distracting for adults and children alike.

Here are a few safety tips to follow for the weekend:

  • Make sure your children’s costumes fit properly and don’t drag under their feet.  If possible, have them avoid wearing masks and use face paint instead.
  • If your children aren’t wearing costumes that are reflective or brightly colored, make sure they’re wearing reflective tape or stickers or carrying flashlights or glow sticks.
  • Travel with your children as they go door-to-door.  If you can’t go with them, make sure they are traveling in a parent-supervised group with a planned route that doesn’t venture into any questionably unsafe areas.
  • If your children will be without adult supervision, give them a cell phone so they can check in periodically and give them a curfew.
  • Check your children’s Trick-or-Treat bags to make sure they haven’t received any dangerous candy or other unsafe items.
  • If you’re out driving during your neighborhood Trick-or-Treat hours, keep an eye out for kids who might be a little too caught up in the fun of the evening to notice your car. Don’t let a child car accident injury spoil the evening’s ghoulish fun.

Have a spook-tacular and child safe Halloween, folks!
