Halloween can get pretty scary for kids, and not just in haunted houses. While the "razorblade in an apple" story has been debunked as a myth, Halloween can be dangerous for children.
The Emergency Medical Services Authority sees a spike in calls for children 14 and younger every Halloween, reported KJRH.
EMSA warns parents against allowing children to carve pumpkins without supervision, to watch costumes that could be flammable, to be vigilant of traffic while trick-or-treating, and to check all Halloween candy before consuming.
How do you make sure your child is safe on Halloween? What precautions do you take? Are there any that are easy to forget?
Our Wantagh-Seaford Family Room hopes to be the place where parents can share their thoughts on issues like back-to-school, or to share any advice on building strong local families.
Sharing is easy.
