Adult Supervision<br />Adult supervision is a must at all times <br />Don’t let your kids go trick-or-treating alone — even if it’s just around the block or in your building<br />If you can’t go, plan to have some adult supervision by conferring with the parents of your children’s friends<br />Some of your neighbors may be having a party, and there’s no way of knowing what kind of crowd they’ll be hosting<br />Make sure there’s at least one adult accompanying the kids when they go on their candy-collection mission<br />
Plan a Route — and Stick to It<br />Plan a route to follow when you go trick-or-treating with a group of children<br />Don’t just set out before thinking of the houses that you’ll visit<br />Explaining the route to the older kids should be enough<br />For the younger ones, draw a route map, and put it in their pockets<br />A route plan helps keep everyone in sync and avoids children running amok in excitement<br />
The More, the Merrier<br />Don’t go trick-or-treating alone<br />Make sure that you do so in a group<br />Not only is it more safe, it’s also more fun<br />The strength in numbers can help keep your kids safer, and kids are also less likely to get into trouble<br />
