It’s important to teach children about safety on the streets this Halloween, but also for parents to make sure there are no real-life boogey men hiding in the neighborhood. Before children set off on the great candy hunt, backgroundchecks.com recommends that families:
• Ensure that an adult or a responsible youth supervises the kids. If someone else is taking your child out for candy, make sure you know whether or not they have a history of crimes against children.
• Plan the trick-or-treating route as a family. Explain to children about avoiding homes of people they do not know. If there is a house on the street that has a “No Candy Here” sign posted, find out why.
• If neighbors offer to drive the kids around this Halloween, make sure you know if they have any moving violations.
