Information for parents on keeping children safe this fright night.
From trick-or-treating ghosts to wicked witches, Halloween is great fun for everyone, including adults. In fact, Halloween is probably one of the best nights of the year for your children! However, in order to keep it that way, there are some critical safety tasks that parents should do before the night. The evening can quickly turn from treats into terrors if safety is not a top priority.
During Halloween, your kids take candy from strangers. On any other night of the year, this would be completely barbaric. Some of the things you should lookout for before allow your kid to indulge are the allergens if your child has allergies, candy with torn wrappers, and if the wrapping have had any signs of tampering.
Your child may have insisted on being Elsa for Halloween, but before she heads off to trick-or-treat, it’s important to adjust the costume as needed. There should be no dragging material that could cause your child or others to trip and fall. Shoes should fit well and be comfortable, and masks should not block the eyes, nose or mouth. You can opt for makeup instead of using the mask!
A great way to have a safe experience is to have your child accompanied by a friend or friends.
- Have an older child or adult accompany your child from door to door.
- Establish a route beforehand and stick to it.
- Only visit houses with their porch light on.
- Flashlights should be carried at all times.
- Stick to sidewalks and only cross as designated crosswalks.
While everyone loves a good scare on Halloween, it is vital that your child is safe all the way through! For all of your insurance needs, contact the professionals at AimPro Insurance, serving Phoenix and neighboring cities in Arizona!
