October is Halloween Safety Month, and it's a time to ensure kids have a safe, happy, and healthy holiday. Planning is an important aspect of Halloween, and careful attention is often given to costumes, trick-or-treating activities, and candy selections. While focusing on Halloween preparations, it's important to remember the safety elements that contribute to a healthy and positive Halloween. One of the best ways to ensure kids are safe during Halloween is to have an adult or responsible teen go trick-or-treating with them. All children under the age of 12 and sometimes even early teens should be accompanied when trick-or-treating.
