It is the season to wear fun costumes and enjoy the door-to-door visits! But,
whether you’re handing out candy at your own home or have your children out
trick or treating, here are some safety tips to help you keep the sweetness in
– Don’t put your children’s names
somewhere (e.g. costumes, bags) where strangers can see to call your child by
name. Do put their names and phone number in a private location (e.g. sleeve)
in the event of separation.
– Never enter a home or allow entrance
to your home. Anyone who enters your home could be making note of the layout
for future entry or looking for items of value that are within quick reach,
– It’s easy for children to get
caught up in the excitement of the occasion, and all of the extra sugar will
certainly feed their energy and curiosity. Always make sure children are
accompanied by a responsible adult.
