Halloween can be a very magical time where the world of make-believe comes alive for children. Let’s make it safe and fun family outing by preparing!
- Plan your route so that children do not become overtired. Agree ahead of time about how many houses you will visit.
- Take the opportunity to explain that normally children should not speak with strangers. Remind them that Halloween is a special time when it is alright for them to go door to door because you will be with them to keep them safe.
- Share your expectations about using good manners before you go out. Let children practice trick or treating at their own door a few times. Reward good trick or treating manners with a treat!
- Don’t forget a flashlight to light the way!
