Is Halloween Safe For Kids
Halloween can be safe for kids. You just have to take the time to really talk with your children about the rules for when they are out trick or treating.
You also want to be aware of the age of your child. Make sure that if they are younger that they are accompanied by an adult. Driving in the car next to your younger child is not a good idea. Get out and walk with them.
At What Age Should You Stop Trick or Treating
Some feel there is an age limit on trick or treating. Many say the age of 12 up to 16 is a good timeframe to stop trick or treating. But even if your child is older it doesn’t mean they can’t go trick or treating.
The key is to ensure no matter what the age of the child is to be kind, offer manners and be respectful.
Why Is Candy Given on Halloween
In the 1950s is when people started handing on candy on Halloween. But some households didn’t hand out candy, it wasn’t until 1970s to when it was well-known that candy is what they hand out for Halloween.
What Time Do Most Kids Trick or Treat
Generally when it begins to get dark is when kids begin to go out. But the time frame is around 5:30 up to 9:30 on trick or treating. One thing that most follow, is if the porch light is on they are welcoming kids to hand out candy. If the porch light is off, they might not be participating in Halloween.
