With children across Canada hitting the streets for Halloween on Saturday, the Canadian Centre for Child Protection wants to ensure the little goblins and ghosts do it safely.
The centre has released a list of safety tips to help build children’s safety competence and confidence while out trick-or-treating.
“These safety habits are easy to implement into your family’s Halloween routine and create a safety foundation that you can build on year by year as children become more independent,” said Noni Classen, director of education at the Canadian Centre.
“Halloween is a great time to discuss some of the real world situations children may face and build up their safety competence.”
Tips include planning a route, creating a direct or in-direct supervision through check-in points as well as the buddy system.
