Tips for Adults:

  • Accompany your child on their trick-or-treating route or if they choose to go with friends, be aware of the route they plan to take

  • Set curfew or check-in times throughout the night so your trick-or-treater stays in contact with you

  • Encourage at least one adult or teenager to accompany your group of trick-or-treaters

  • Check their bag of candy before you child is allowed to eat any of them

  • Explain the difference between tricks and vandalism while they are out with their friends

  • Make sure each trick-or-treater has a flashlight or glow stick with them

  • Assist with your child's costume and make sure that it is safe and reflective

  • Tell your child never to go inside the home or car of a stranger
