Halloween is TONIGHT(!) and you should all know tips to make your trick or treating experience a safe one.

Here are my Top 11 Rules for having a Safe & Happy Halloween:

  1. Children should go out only during daylight hours unless accompanied by an adult
  2. Plan a safe route, through “good” parts of the neighborhood
  3. Set a return time
  4. If your kids are going out alone make sure they are responsible enough to know take care of themselves
  5. Stay in populated places and not cut through back alleys.
  6. Stay in well lighted areas
  7. Make sure treats are examined by an adult before eating
  8. Eat nothing that isn’t fully wrapped
  9. Never enter the house of a stranger
  10. Carry a flashlight, glow stick, or reflective costumes so that cars can see you
  11. Do not go out ALONE… make sure you are with a group of at least three people

If you follow these rules you will have a fun, safe, Halloween.
