It’s practically here. Time to go trick-or-treating. And while ghosts and superheroes and all sorts of characters will haunt the night in the name of good fun, there are a few real dangers out there to watch for. That’s why we’re suggesting these Halloween safety tips every parent should enforce.
Look Both Ways

And a little extra reminder will definitely be in order if they hit the road on All Hallows Eve. After all, they’re new drivers. Tell them to take it slow in neighborhoods and be extra careful watching for kids running from house to house.
