Aside from the numerous scary characters this Halloween, knowing that your children will be roaming around the neighborhood for the trick or treat is also scary. You are not sure if the neighborhood would be safe at night.
Not letting the children join the Halloween activity is not a wise thing to do though. It’s one of those events that they’d be remembering until they come of age and prohibition is like removing something very special from them. Letting the children join in activities such as these is not like being too permissive.
The wisest thing to do is to apply all the possible ways on keeping their Halloween experience as safe as possible.
Curfew – though magical and scary creatures get active at Halloween night, it’s not a valid reason to live up to it while you’re just portraying their character. Impose to your kids that they should be home at around 10pm or at least before midnight because simply there’s nothing wrong it.
Join the gig – if you’re really not comfortable leaving them outside by themselves, you might as well consider joining the Halloween event and have the trick or treat together. You both can choose a villain tandem or a batman and robin partnership.
Your kids’ Halloween costume may not be the same every year; so don’t forget to take pictures and might as well have a scrapbook of it.
