Editorial: Happy Halloween

Halloween can turn into a nightmare if parents don’t make their children fully aware of the risks involved the tradition of trick-or-treating each year.

For a happy and healthy Halloween, consider speaking with your child regarding his or her safety on Oct. 31. Here are a few tips to pass along:

- Remember to accompany a small child and have older kids travel in groups. - Remind your kids that homemade treats might look appetizing but they should politely refuse the offer and stick to traditionally packaged and well-known candy.

- Make sure your child knows not to enter a stranger’s house or vehicle.

- Remind them that eggs, shaving cream and other destructive items can be potentially dangerous and to respect people and property as they normally would.

- Walk when crossing the street and consider using a flashlight if wearing a dark costume.

- Have fun! Halloween is a great way to spend time outdoors with family and friends before we lose daylight savings and old man winter creeps back into the picture.
