Have Fun But Be Safe This Halloween
CHARLOTTE, N.C., October 31, 2011 — It’s Halloween today – one of the most anticipated holidays for children.
You want them to have fun but you also want them to be safe. Here’s our Halloween Safety Top Ten.
- Don’t talk to strangers and always use the buddy system.
- Watch for cars and look both ways before crossing the street
- Wear or carry an item that glows in the dark to be more visible. Children should be seen on Halloween.
- If your child’s costume is not flame retardant, make a special reminder to stay away from luminaries and candles.
- Remind your teen about the rules of distracted driving – especially on fun nights like this.
- If possible – give your older child a cellphone so they can have a direct link to you
- Map the route that your child will be taking so that you can have an idea where they will be at certain times
- Be vigilant around your own neighborhood
- Make sure to inspect candy for your little ones. It’s best to stick to the individually-wrapped kind
- Have fun but be safe.
