Child Halloween Safety Tips
Halloween night is one night of the year where it almost feels like all rules go out the window.
Children count down the days towards Halloween night when it is okay to scare people, okay to play tricks on others, and okay to ask strangers for treats!
We as parents spend so much time and energy protecting our children from common dangers in and out of the home for the every day, but when it comes to special nights like Halloween; it can be very easy to forget some of the most basic rules.
Research indicates that Halloween night is most dangerous for children between the ages of five and eleven, and that lack of parental supervision is a leading cause in many injuries that may occur with children on Halloween night.
To ensure child Halloween safety, even more precautions than your every day safety concerns need to be taken, as the bulk of the activities happen in the dark, with strangers, and on crowded streets.
It is very easy to ensure your childs safety on Halloween night without compromising their fun as well.
The number ONE rule of Halloween safety is to ensure your child is supervised.
If your child falls in the age ranges between five and eleven, then you must ensure your child is accompanied by you, or by a trustworthy adult.
Do not trust young children with older children, as the night is too distracting and too much fun even for older children.
Take the initiative and the responsibility and attend this event with your child. When years pass and you look back, you will be happy that you did.
Here are some basic child Halloween safety tips for the remainder of the evening.
Before You and Your Children Go Out
When you and Your Children are Trick or Treating
When the Night is over
After everyone is home and safe and sound, the only concern you have now is what is in their bags.
Inspect all goodies for both young and older children and toss out anything you just dont feel right about or is questionable.
Do not allow your children to eat anything that has been unwrapped, or does not come in a sealed wrapper.
These are the basics of child Halloween safety. As always, use your best judgment, your parental instinct, and you can ensure a safe night for everyone without instilling a feeling of paranoia.
