8 Tips Every Parent Should Know This Halloween

 

Halloween can be a fun and exciting time families. These safety tips for parents, children will help keep everyone safe and happy this Halloween.

We know that making your own Halloween costume can be time consuming, but keep this in mind- dark colored clothing on Halloween can be very hard for cars to see and therefor dangerous for your child while trick- or - treating.

If possible, avoid letting your child wear a mask. We know, they are fun, but masks make it hard for children to see what’s around them, including cars. We recommend non-toxic make-up kit instead.

Trick or treating generally happens at dusk or later, this means that kids are likely running around in the dark and may not be able to see where you are. Try putting your child’s name, address and phone number on his or her costume just in case.


We all know kids want to eat their candy the moment they get it, but it is important to tell your children not to eat anything until they get home. If your child has any allergies, ensure that they tell the person who is giving out the treats.


Have the kids carry glow sticks or flashlights to help them see and be seen by drivers!


All children must know that it is important not to visit houses that are not well lit and to never go inside a stranger's house.


Parents, remove make-up before bedtime to prevent possible skin and eye irritation.
