Positive Parenting Halloween Tricks, Treats and Safety Tips
Halloween is a tricky holiday for parents of any age. Depending on the child's age, problems can range from eating too many sweets to inappropriate pranks and parties. Younger kids should be chaperoned, while children at around 10, 11 or 12 may be allowed around their immediate neighborhood by themselves. It's important for children to wear light clothing or reflective tape so that they can be seen by cars. They should also wear age appropriate clothing to prevent teasing tempting destructive behavior. Presented by the NYU Child Study Center.
