While kids love Halloween night with the free candy, dressing up in costumes, and enjoying a night with their friends, it is imperative that safety does not take a backseat during this time. Precaution and safety measures are often forgotten during the midst of selecting a costume, trick-or-treating, and enjoying sweets. Parents, ensure the safety of your children with these safety steps: • Opt for Face Paints: Masks can obstruct your child’s view and breathing, so choose non-toxic face paints instead. • Fitting Costume: Choose a bright colored costume to make your child more visible in the dark, that there is no dragging material that could cause trips, and that all props are flexible and soft. • Illuminate The Way: Add reflective tape to their bag or costume, and insist that your child carry a flashlight during the dark night. • Adult Advisory: Any child under 12 should be accompanied by an adult whilst trick-or-treating. If your child is over 12 years of age, establish a pre-planned walking route and a curfew. • Walk the Talk: Remind your child of road safety like looking left, right, left again before crossing the street; walking on sidewalks at all times; crossing busy roads as designated crosswalks only. • Candy Police: Inspect all candy before eating it to ensure it looks safe to consume.
