How to have a safer Halloween
Any holiday has its risks and dangers, but if you know what you are looking out for and how to prevent possible problems then you should be able to avoid these and enjoy the time with your family and friends. Halloween often involves going from door to door whilst trick or treating, and your children need to be taken care of whilst this is happening to ensure that they are as safe as possible. You should make sure a parent or guardian accompanies them as the first rule, but here are some other ways to ensure that they have a good time and stay safe.
Think about the safety of the costume
Many costumes aren’t particularly safe when it comes to props and gadgets, depending on the age of your child. Think about your child with relation to age and how well they are able to handle certain props such as pointed or sharp objects, and remove anything you don’t think is safe.
Keep your child visible
Put your child in bright colours and give each child a torch to use when they are on dark roads. Remember that even though there will be lots of trick or treaters out, there will also be cars and these can pose a hazard to your child if they cannot be seen.
Get your child to bring their haul home before they eat it
This way you can check that everything is in date and safe to eat before you turn it back over to your child. Stories about poisoned sweets have generally proved to be untrue, but you will still want to know that what your child is going to eat is safe.
