While a lot of fun, trick or treating can also be a cause of concern for a lot of parents and it’s important to keep in mind that there can be safety risks with sending the kids out on their own.
To help keep your peace of mind, it could be a good idea to get together with people you already know in your neighbourhood and organise particular homes that can be visited so that you know your children will be safe and won’t be disturbing anybody who doesn’t want to be disturbed.
If you and your neighbours can all agree on who will be trick or treating then it will be a lot safer and more fun for everyone.
Alternatively, if you don’t know the people in your neighbourhood then you might like to leave a note in people’s letterboxes to let them know you plan on doorknocking so they can contact you.
For those who live in suburban areas where trick or treating normally takes place, you can leave a sign on the front lawn to let others know whether or not you want to be a part of trick or treating.
Remember, it’s best if a trusted adult accompanies the kids to make sure that they respect the houses being visited and stay safe on the roads too.
Also keep in mind that a lot of people in the area don’t celebrate Halloween, so respect those that don’t want to be a part of the tradition. It might also help if you trick or treat while there’s still daylight, so as not to scare people late at night.
