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.
