When They’re Trick or Treating
A responsible adult should accompany young children on the neighborhood rounds. If your older children are going alone, plan and review a route acceptable to you.
Agree on a specific time children should return home.
Teach your children never to enter a stranger’s home or car.
Instruct children to travel only in familiar, well-lit areas and stick with their friends.
Tell your children not to eat any treats until they return home.
Children and adults are reminded to put electronic devices down, keep heads up and walk, don’t run, across the street.
