Your kids know not to stray into the road when they’re walking to school. But on Halloween,
when kids are running amok all over the neighbourhood from house to house, it seems like all bets are off.
It’s essential to make sure that your kids are still following basic safety rules, like staying on the
sidewalks and looking both ways before crossing the street. On busier roads, be sure to use the crosswalk
and make absolutely sure that any approaching drivers can see you. Be careful about sprinting across
unfamiliar lawns, too; in the dark, it can be tricky to see decorations or other tripping hazards lurking in
It's worth bearing in mind that trick-or-treating could take you several streets away from your house,
which can cause a bit of frustration, not to mention sore legs. Mapping out a route before leaving the house
will help you avoid long paths. Stick to the streets that you and your child are familiar with will help
prevent losing your way.
