1. A parent or responsible adult should always accompany young children trick or treating around the neighborhood on Halloween.
2. If your child is old enough to go trick or treating on their own, outline an agreed upon route and have them check-in via cell phone or be at central location where you will be waiting for them.
3. Remind your child to stay in a group.
4. Make sure that they are aware of the time and synchronize clocks so that you can agree on a time for them to return home or meet up with you.
5. Wear reflective stickers/tape/strips and/or attach flashlight or light up keychain to costume.
6. Be sure that your child is aware of allergies and what they should and should not take while out trick or treating. Look for teal pumpkins which indicate homes are giving away "non-food treats".
7. Only go to homes with a porch light on. Never enter a home or car for a treat.
8. Don't eat any unwrapped/open candy that they receive from trick or treating.
Everyone have a fun and safe Halloween!
