Trick or Treat Safety: Keeping Your Kids Accounted For

#AskSandraZisckind

When it comes to Halloween, it seems like there are a lot of things to worry about. First of all, your kids are going to be accepting candy from strangers – that in itself is one of the most difficult things to fathom. In the end of it all, most people are decent and would never try to bring harm to your or your child (especially during the trick or treating process); but there’s always going to be things that you should be keeping an eye out for. In this piece, we’re going to be looking through the many different trick or treat safety tips that you should be seriously reading over. Not only will it make the experience a much more enjoyable one, but it allows you to relax a little bit as well.

The Tips

Some of these may seem obvious, and others are going to come off as being a little “out there”. You have to think outside of the box, it is Halloween after all! Just read over the tips and apply ones you think could seriously help your trick or treating situation.

Clothing – When it comes to the clothing that your child will be wearing, make sure all of their items are as flexible as possible. Not only that, but avoid any sort of mask that would cover their face or nose for an extended period of time. The shoes that you and your child are wearing need to be comfortable, as you’re more than likely going to be walking around for hours upon hours. If you aren’t comfortable, the entire trick or treating experience is going to feel lackluster.

Candy – Checking the candy is one of the most important parts to your trick or treating endeavours. If the candy that your child is eating hasn’t been checked, there could be potentially dangerous/hazardous materials in there. Like I said before, it’s a good idea to consistently check pieces of your children’s candy – if that means cutting every single piece they have in half, so be it!

Planning – Plan a route, and stick to it. When you’ve got a route set in stone, you won’t go off the beaten path. Try and stick to main streets, as well as neighbourhoods filled with Halloween-friendly homes. For example, some people know of areas in their city in which homeowners go “all out” when it comes to Halloween decorations; seek them out and get all of the candy you can!Halloween can be a tricky day to plan for, as well as keep perfectly safe for your kids. When there’s candy being handed out, as well as an abundance of people being in the streets, there’s bound to be some problems. With thorough planning and a knack for knowing what’s best, this Halloween should be a relatively easy one for you and your family to go through. Just make sure you don’t eat all of your kids’ candy!
