and get free candy! What a perfect holiday! Give your kids some precious Halloween
memories that they'll have for life.
Some of you
kids already know things that you can do to be safe, like how to cross the
street, not to talk to or go with strangers and things like that. But we adults
know how exciting Halloween can be and that can make you forget to be careful.
tips that we have just for you kids, to help keep you safe on Halloween night!
Some of these ideas are called "common sense" ideas, that means that they are
things that you should know and use every day in life. You are never too young
Never, ever go into a
strangers house or even ring their door for
treats unless your parents are with you and say
that it's okay. There are some people in life
that aren't very nice to kids and you have to be
careful. Always make sure that your mom or dad
is within sight when you go out
Be careful when you
cross a street. Make sure to look in both
directions and make sure that there are no cars
coming. If you have a little brother or sister
with you, take their hand and help them get
across the street, too. If the street has a stop

before you cross, look both ways.

teen, and going out with friends, make sure that

don't want to run out on a dark street, all
alone, like a bad horror movie!

for your own safety. If you are going to be
late, call them and let them know.
Vandalism is never cool! Throwing eggs at cars
and houses is not cool. Someone has to clean it
up and it could be you, if you get caught. You

So, don't think that it's fun only if you can
get away with it. It's never the right thing to
do! Think about how you would feel if someone
did that to your house and how bad it would make
Hurting animals is never
acceptable behavior! Some people use Halloween
as an excuse to hurt cats and that is just
wrong! Not only is it illegal in most places to
hurt or torture animals and punishable by law,
you should never hurt a helpless living thing.
on Halloween but keep it safe, have some good, clean fun
and your parents will trust you for many Halloweens to
come! Showing them how responsible you can be will give
you a feeling of pride and make them see just how adult
you really are.
