Inspect your child’s candy

When you get home, be sure to look over all of your child’s candy before letting them eat any. Throw away any pieces that look they have been opened or tampered with in any way. If you find anything suspicious, contact the proper authorities. Make note of which houses are giving out any suspicious candy.

Keep your eye on the weather

Many times halloween costumes are not designed with the weather in mind. Be sure to check the weather before venturing out. Plan ahead for any inclement weather possibilities. Your child may not like having to wear a rain jacket over their pirate costume, but they’ll like being wet even less. But a bucket full of candy at the end of the day should make everything better.
