Hello all, Aimee here blogging on behalf of Kline May Realty and our family of agents. Halloween is right around the corner. It's hard to believe, isn't it? It seems like just yesterday the snow was melting. Now we're adorning our front porches with straw bales, pumpkins, and mums and stocking up on candy at our favorite retail stores.
I think it's safe to say that Halloween night is one of the most fun nights of the year for many kids, and this Halloween is extra special because it falls on a Friday night. No school the next day! I remember trick-or-treating as a kid, and the steps my mom and dad would take to make sure that I had a safe night. Here are five tips to keep your loving little goblins safe on All Hallows' Eve.
1. Make sure your child is easily visible to motor vehicles. Reflective tape and a flashlight helps!
2. Say no to texting and driving, talking and driving, Facebooking and driving, etc.
3. Do not let your child trick-or-treat alone. Travel with them or make sure they use a buddy system if they're old enough to trick-or-treat without an adult.
4. Plan a trick-or-treating route that is familiar to your children in case you get separated. Also have a designated meeting spot in mind.
5. Discard of any candy that has open wrappers. And resist the urge to open a few Kit Kats and Reese Cups on purpose so you have to "discard" them.
Happy Halloween, y'all!
