ON THE TRICK-OR-TREAT TRAIL:
n If your older children are going alone, plan and review the route that is acceptable to you. Agree on a specific time when they should return home.
n Only go to homes with a porch light on and never enter a home or car for a treat.
n Never cut across yards or use alleys.
n Law enforcement authorities should be notified immediately of any suspicious or unlawful activity.
n A good meal prior to parties and trick-or-treating will discourage youngsters from filling up on Halloween treats.
n Consider purchasing non-food treats for those who visit your home, such as coloring books or pens and pencils.
n Wait until children are home to sort and check treats. Though tampering is rare, a responsible adult should closely examine all treats and throw away any spoiled, unwrapped or suspicious items.
n Try to ration treats for the days following Halloween.
