Halloween Safety Tips


Ghouls and Goblins Fill the Air, Parents and Caregivers Must Beware!
From the Paranoid Sisters

 With Halloween just around the corner, the "Paranoid Sisters," Lisa Carter and Lori Marques authors of Child Safety Made Easy have a few suggestions for parents and caregivers of Trick-or-Treaters:

  • Be sure your child's costume is age appropriate. Too many buttons and strings on baby's or toddler's costumes may present a choking hazard. Avoid any long tails or material hanging off costumes that may cause a child to trip or catch on fire if it gets too close to a lighted pumpkin.
  • Costumes should be light colored or have reflective tape attached to it, to make your child easy to see. Have your child carry a flashlight.
  • An adult should accompany all children throughout Trick-or-Treating. Don't allow older kids to stay out late in the night. This opens the possibilities for trouble to brew and can be irritating to homeowners.
  • Tell your children to obey all usual traffic safety rules: look both ways before crossing the street, hold hands, cross only at cross walks, etc.
  • Wait until you can look at the candy for tampering before you allow your child to eat any. Be sure it's age-appropriate also. No hard candy for children under 5 years, this is a possible choking hazard. Very chewy candy should be avoided, too.
  • Now get your little trick-or-treaters dressed up and ready to haul in the candy that surely they'll need a lot of help eating!
