Halloween Safety Tips For Kids & Teens
Never ever go into a stranger’s house or even ring the doorbell for treats unless your parents say that it’s ok. There are some people in life that aren’t very nice to kids and you have to be careful. Always make sure that your parents or designated supervisor are within sight when you are trick or treating.
Never go to a house that does not have their porch light turned on.
Be careful when you cross the street. Make sure to look both ways and there are no cars coming. Look out for younger siblings and friends, hold hands when crossing the street, when it is safe to cross.
If you are an older teen and are going out with your friends, make sure your parents know where you are going and who you are going with. This may seem like a pain, but your parents love you and want you to be safe.
If you can drive and are taking friends to a party, make sure that you have enough gas to get there before you leave. You don’t want to run out of gas in a dark rural place, all alone, like a bad horror movie! And be sure to have a spare tire and flashlight in your car.
If your parents give you a curfew, be home when they say. It builds trust between you and them and they are concerned with your safety. If you are going to be late, call or text and let them know.
