We had such a great time at our 4th annual Trunk-or-Treat last Friday! Thanks to everyone who came out and enjoyed a fun evening of games, candy and costumes. As a Learning Academy that values the comfort and security of your child we realize that some children may be at the age where they begin to ask tricky questions about the “trick” part of “trick-or-treat.”
As a parent how can you be smart about educating your child when it comes to the spookier side of Halloween?
Here are some helpful suggestions:
- Explain that Halloween is all about make-believe. Some people like to make-believe they are scary characters but they are still regular people.
- Establish ground rules about Costumes. Older siblings may want to wear something scarier but with younger children in the house, it’s helpful to decide how much is too much ahead of time.
- Avoid any part of town where you know more “thrill-seeking” Halloween events are happening. No need to unnecessarily expose your child to an environment that is designed for a mature audience.
Your friends at Kids ‘R’ Kids of Cinco Ranch East hope that your Halloween is safe, memorable and filled with lots of yummy treats!
