If you are taking your kiddos out to trick or treat this Halloween, chances are that they will probably get a whole lot of candy that night. Back when I was a kid I remember that I used to eat some of the candy that I got throughout the night, unfortunately now a days that may not be the best idea. We live in a world where a lot of scary things happen everyday and we have to be extra safe when it comes to our kids. Today I am going to be sharing with you why it really is a good idea for you to check all of your kid’s Halloween candy for safety reasons and make sure that everything is safe before they eat anything.
There are a lot of crazy people out there and unfortunately our kids are not always safe. When you are accepting so much candy from so many different people, you never know what can happen in that process, you don’t know what kind of people you are accepting those candies from. As a parent it is important to keep your kids safe and that is why you really should be checking their candy when you get home from trick or treating.
What to look for? Be sure to check each piece of candy making sure that none are opened or look like they have been opened and resealed. Also make sure that even if they are sealed that there are no holes or anything in the packaging at all, people can get very creative with their suspicious behavior so just be sure to be thorough. Also another thing you should check is just the bag itself, make sure there isn’t anything sharp in the bag like glass or needles/sharp objects. If you feel weary about any houses along your route, feel free to skip those houses just to be safe and to avoid any issues that could come from. Trust that parental instinct and you will know what is best for your kiddos.
Most times trick or treating is probably harmless and I’m not necessarily saying that you are going to find anything wrong with any of the candy in y our kids candy, all I am saying is that it may be smart to check it to ensure that it is safe to eat and that your kids are not in danger. It really is better to be safe rather than sorry. Just remember that anything can happen and just be safe out there this Halloween. Have fun and Happy Halloween!
