Halloween Safety for Teenagers

Parents are on high-alert when they have small children for the dangers that lurk on Halloween.  We scan their candy at the police station, warn them of predators, maybe even accompany them as they trick-or-treat, but what about our teenagers?

Don't forget to warn your teen children of the dangers that lurk.  With this Halloween falling on the weekend there will be more parties than usual.  And, sadly when there's parties, there's often drunk drivers out on the roads.  Remind your child not to get into the vehicle with anyone who has been drinking.  If your child is a driver, consider reviewing with them defensive driving techniques to implement, if someone were to swerve onto their side of the road.  

I want to wish you a safe and fun-filled weekend.
